    I'm trying to mitigate a CVE, and we're told it affects versions of Apache 2.0 before 2.0.43, and 1.3.x up to 1.3.26. 

    How do I find out what version is running on our proposed 7005 / 7210 controller upgrade -

    It would not be easy to obtain this information unless Aruba has provided it. Normally, you'd check the Security Advisories which details the affected CVE's and the correct remediation action.

    You should not consider a controller/gateway running Apache. It's a hardened and integrated system, not a server running Apache. For that reason, the versions of the used software components are not relevant and not shared. If vulnerabilities are found in any of the used components you should check and follow the advisories as posted on the Aruba website.

    Even if Apache of a specific version was used in one of the Aruba products, the CVE (which you did not mention) is likely to be out of scope for embedded systems like ArubaOS, or not applicable because of configuration/modules; and a false positive of your security scanner.

    I would advise you to check the current version of ArubaOS running against the advisories posted after the build date for vulnerabilities and plan your upgrades accordingly.

    More information about the security response program is here. Another good document to check is the ArubaOS Hardening Guide, which helps you to further lock down the controller and limit access to any services to only what is needed, further reducing the risk and attack surface.
