Package        : apache2
Version        : 2.4.10-10+deb8u13
CVE ID         : CVE-2018-17199


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.
