Title: libapreq2: Denial of Service vulnerability (GLSA 200604-08)
Date: April 17, 2006
A vulnerability has been reported in libapreq2 which could lead to a Denial of Service.
libapreq is a shared library with associated modules for manipulating client request data via the Apache API.
Vulnerable: < 2.07
Unaffected: >= 2.07
Architectures: All supported architectures
A vulnerability has been reported in the apreq_parse_headers() and apreq_parse_urlencoded() functions of Apache2::Request.
A remote attacker could possibly exploit the vulnerability to cause a Denial of Service by CPU consumption.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All libapreq2 users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apache/libapreq2-2.07"
