Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Apache: Exposure of protected directories (GLSA 200409-33)
Severity: low
Exploitable: remote
Date: September 24, 2004
Updated: December 30, 2007
Bug(s): #64804
ID: 200409-33

Synopsis


A bug in the way Apache handles the Satisfy directive can lead to the
exposure of protected directories to unauthorized users.


Background


The Apache HTTP server is one of most popular web servers on the Internet.


Affected Packages

Package: www-servers/apache
Vulnerable: = 2.0.51
Unaffected: >= 2.0.51-r1
Unaffected: < 2.0.51
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description


A bug in the way Apache handles the Satisfy directive, which is used to
require that certain conditions (client host, client authentication, etc)
be met before access to a certain directory is granted, could allow the
exposure of protected directories to unauthorized clients.


Impact


Directories containing protected data could be exposed to all visitors to
the webserver.


Workaround


There is no known workaround at this time.


Resolution


All Apache users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge sync

    # emerge -pv ">=www-servers/apache-2.0.51-r1"
    # emerge ">=www-servers/apache-2.0.51-r1"
