Apache mod_proxy_ajp Module Incoming Request Body Denial Of Service Vulnerability

oval:org.mitre.oval:def:8619

The ap_proxy_ajp_request function in mod_proxy_ajp.c in mod_proxy_ajp in the Apache HTTP Server 2.2.x before 2.2.15 does not properly handle certain situations in which a client sends no request body which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (backend server outage) via a crafted request related to use of a 500 error code instead of the appropriate 400 error code.
