Stratum8 defends against Apache flaw
Stratum8 Networks recently announced that its Web security software detects and blocks exploits of the widely publicized "chunked encoding" vulnerability in Apache servers. Remote attackers could exploit this vulnerability to deface Web content, conduct a denial-of-service attack, or even compromise sensitive data within the enterprise. Stratum8's Application Protection System (APS) employs a behavioral, real-time, fail-safe security architecture which treats any request that falls outside of its security model as a potential hack, and blocks that request without requiring any specific knowledge of the attack signature.
