License server has outdated apache httpd


Raffael Luthiger

Question

Our security team is always writing us that the apache httpd which is included in the license server is outdated and vulnerable to serious security issues. We have the officially newest version of the license server. I have now two questions:

 

1) When does the next license server come out and will it have the latest version of apache httpd?

 

2) Would it be possible to update the apache httpd on my own?

This would be a great help to our organization. I was disappointed to see that the new LTSR released last week does not include an updated License Server component. Citrix is now two versions of Apache updates behind. We are reconsidering what value the license server web ui is actually providing given the amount of time we spend on researching apache vulnerabilities and processing waivers on a monthly basis to keep the system in compliance.

1) The new Citrix License Server released on Oct. 16th contains Apache 2.4.54 and should mediate all known vulnerabilities
Please reference https://docs.citrix.com/en-us/licensing/current-release/about.html#whats-new-in-the-license-server-version-11172-build-40000

2) No, This is not supported.
