The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
Matthew Palmer discovered an underflow flaw in apr-util. An attacker
could cause a denial of service via application crash in Apache using
a crafted SVNMasterURI directive, .htaccess file, or when using
mod_apreq2. Applications using libapreq2 are also affected.
It was discovered that the XML parser did not properly handle entity
expansion. A remote attacker could cause a denial of service via
memory resource consumption by sending a crafted request to an Apache
server configured to use mod_dav or mod_dav_svn. (CVE-2009-1955)
C. Michael Pilato discovered an off-by-one buffer overflow in apr-util
when formatting certain strings. For big-endian machines (powerpc,
hppa and sparc in Ubuntu), a remote attacker could cause a denial of
service or information disclosure leak. All other architectures for
Ubuntu are not considered to be at risk. (CVE-2009-1956).
