Ubuntu 8.04 LTS / 8.10 / 9.04 : apr vulnerability (USN-813-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2009-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2009-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

Matt Lewis discovered that apr did not properly sanitize its input
when allocating memory. If an application using apr processed crafted
input, a remote attacker could cause a denial of service or
potentially execute arbitrary code as the user invoking the
application.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.

Solution :

Update the affected libapr1, libapr1-dbg and / or libapr1-dev
packages.

Risk factor :

Critical / CVSS Base Score : 10.0
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)
CVSS Temporal Score : 8.7
(CVSS2#E:ND/RL:OF/RC:C)
Public Exploit Available : false
