Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Apache 1.3: Buffer overflow vulnerability in mod_include (GLSA 200411-03)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: local
Date: November 02, 2004
Updated: December 30, 2007
Bug(s): #68564
ID: 200411-03

Synopsis

A buffer overflow vulnerability exists in mod_include which could possibly allow a local attacker to gain escalated privileges.

Background

The Apache HTTP server is one of the most popular web servers on the internet. mod_include is an Apache module to handle Server Side Includes (SSI).

Affected Packages

Package: www-servers/apache
Vulnerable: < 1.3.32-r1
Unaffected: >= 1.3.32-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

A possible buffer overflow exists in the get_tag() function of mod_include.c.

Impact

If Server Side Includes (SSI) are enabled, a local attacker may be able to run arbitrary code with the rights of an httpd child process by making use of a specially-crafted document with malformed SSI.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All Apache users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-servers/apache-1.3.32-r1"
