Title: Apache 1.3: Buffer overflow vulnerability in mod_include (GLSA 200411-03)
Date: November 02, 2004
Updated: December 30, 2007
A buffer overflow vulnerability exists in mod_include which could possibly allow a local attacker to gain escalated privileges.
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).
Vulnerable: < 1.3.32-r1
Unaffected: >= 1.3.32-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures
A possible buffer overflow exists in the get_tag() function of mod_include.c.
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.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Apache users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-servers/apache-1.3.32-r1"
