Date Reported:
29 Jan 2019
Affected Packages:
Security database references:
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2018-17199.
More information:

Diego Angulo from ImExHS discovered an issue in the webserver apache2. The module mod_session ignored the expiry time of sessions handled by mod_session_cookie, because the expiry time is available only after decoding the session and the check was already done before.

For Debian 8 Jessie, this problem has been fixed in version 2.4.10-10+deb8u13.

We recommend that you upgrade your apache2 packages.
