Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Apache: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 200711-06)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: November 07, 2007
Bug(s): #186219
ID: 200711-06

Synopsis

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Apache, possibly resulting in a Denial of Service or the disclosure of sensitive information.

Background

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

Affected Packages

Package: www-servers/apache
Vulnerable: < 2.2.6
Unaffected: >= 2.0.59-r5 < 2.0.60
Unaffected: >= 2.2.6
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Multiple cross-site scripting vulnerabilities have been discovered in mod_status and mod_autoindex (CVE-2006-5752, CVE-2007-4465). An error has been discovered in the recall_headers() function in mod_mem_cache (CVE-2007-1862). The mod_cache module does not properly sanitize requests before processing them (CVE-2007-1863). The Prefork module does not properly check PID values before sending signals (CVE-2007-3304). The mod_proxy module does not correctly check headers before processing them (CVE-2007-3847).

Impact

A remote attacker could exploit one of these vulnerabilities to inject arbitrary script or HTML content, obtain sensitive information or cause a Denial of Service.

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-2.0.59-r5"
