GENTOO LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT 200210-002
- - --------------------------------------------------------------------

PACKAGE : apache
SUMMARY : shared memory scoreboard vulnerabilities
EXPLOIT : local
DATE : 2002-10-15 08:25 UTC

- - --------------------------------------------------------------------

Apache HTTP Server contains a vulnerability in its shared memory
scoreboard. Attackers who can execute commands under the Apache
UID can either send a (SIGUSR1) signal to any process as root, in
most cases killing the process, or launch a local denial of service (DoS)
attack.

SOLUTION

It is recommended that all Gentoo Linux users who are running
net-www/apache-1.3.26-r4 and earlier update their systems
as follows:

emerge rsync
emerge apache
emerge clean
