Fedora Core 2 : apr-util-0.9.4-14.2 (2004-308)

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

Testing using the Codenomicon HTTP Test Tool performed by the Apache
Software Foundation security group and Red Hat uncovered an input
validation issue in the IPv6 URI parsing routines in the apr-util
library. If a remote attacker sent a request including a carefully
crafted URI, an httpd child process could be made to crash. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the
name CVE-2004-0786 to this issue.

This update includes a backported fix for this issue.

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