Comment 9 Doran Moppert 2019-09-04 03:31:04 UTC
Mitigation:

This flaw is only exploitable if Apache httpd is configured to respond to HTTP/2 requests, which is done by including "h2" or "h2c" in the "Protocols" list in a configuration file.  The following command can be used to search for possible vulnerable configurations: 

    grep -R '^\s*Protocols\>.*\<h2\>' /etc/httpd/

See https://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/mod/mod_http2.html
