Ubuntu 14.04 LTS / 16.04 LTS / 16.10 / 17.04 : apache2 vulnerabilities (USN-3340-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2017 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.

Description :

Emmanuel Dreyfus discovered that third-party modules using the
ap_get_basic_auth_pw() function outside of the authentication phase
may lead to authentication requirements being bypassed. This update
adds a new ap_get_basic_auth_components() function for use by
third-party modules. (CVE-2017-3167)

Vasileios Panopoulos discovered that the Apache mod_ssl module may
crash when third-party modules call ap_hook_process_connection()
during an HTTP request to an HTTPS port. (CVE-2017-3169)

Javier Jimenez discovered that the Apache HTTP Server incorrectly
handled parsing certain requests. A remote attacker could possibly use
this issue to cause the Apache HTTP Server to crash, resulting in a
denial of service. (CVE-2017-7668)

ChenQin and Hanno Bock discovered that the Apache mod_mime module
incorrectly handled certain Content-Type response headers. A remote
attacker could possibly use this issue to cause the Apache HTTP Server
to crash, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2017-7679).

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 apache2-bin package.

Risk factor :
