Apache bug leaks contents of server memory for all to see—Patch now | Ars Technica

Another vulnerability hits the news. Whilst similar to heartbleed in leaking memory contents, it does not seem to be too risky if you’re running it as a single user, and the memory leak isn’t huge quantities.

Saying that, this vulnerability also may also affect cloud systems. For example, on AWS, (which has httpd), doing a version check:

$ httpd -v
Server version: Apache/2.4.27 (Amazon)
Server built: Aug 2 2017 18:02:45

However, without knowing how Amazon have setup Apache behind the scenes, are we able to say definitely that we are/aren’t affected?
