remediating vulnerabilities

L2 Linker

My scanning team keeps finding vulnerabilities on Expedition and keep requesting I patch them. They all seem to be related to Linux not Expedition itself. I know that I can't upgrade the version of Ubuntu that it runs on. Suggestions? 


list of some of the vulnerabilities




















L4 Transporter

Hello @rodill 


Update your apache2 service to patch these vulnerabilities. The latest version of apache2 is running on 2.4.46 so I used that in this example and after you restart apache2 it should be reachable, and please back up the VM if for any event you have problems after the upgrade.


sudo add-apt-repo ppa:ondrej/apache2
sudo apt-get install
apache2 -v (it is now on the latest)
sudo service apache2 restart


thanks for the suggestions. The first command doesn't comeback as a valid command. The expedition is just as Palo supplied it if that matters in this instance. I run the version check and I get this


Server version: Apache/2.4.18 (Ubuntu)
Server built: 2020-08-12T21:35:50



Hello @rodill 


The first command is reaching out to a remote repository please make sure if you are running a proxy it has access to communicate with it. The Apache Version is 2.4.18 so when you run what I suggested then you should now be on 2.4.46 when you run the version check.

thanks to your suggestions I found I needed to run this


sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ondrej/apache2
sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

this did the trick for me on the upgrade, will wait on the scanning team, thanks again
