Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : apache2 (MDKSA-2003:063-1)

This script is Copyright (C) 2004-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

Two vulnerabilities were discovered in the Apache web server that
affect all 2.x versions prior to 2.0.46. The first, discovered by John
Hughes, is a build system problem that allows remote attackers to
prevent access to authenticated content when a threaded server is
used. This only affects versions of Apache compiled with threaded
server 'httpd.worker', which is not the default for Mandrake Linux.

The second vulnerability, discovered by iDefense, allows remote
attackers to cause a DoS (Denial of Service) condition and may also
allow the execution of arbitrary code.

The provided packages include back-ported fixes to correct these
vulnerabilities and MandrakeSoft encourages all users to upgrade
immediately.

Update :

The previous update mistakenly listed apache-conf packages which were
never included, nor intended to be included, as part of the update.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.0
