This script is Copyright (C) 2006-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

A memory leak in the worker MPM in Apache 2 could allow remote
attackers to cause a Denial of Service (memory consumption) via
aborted commands in certain circumstances, which prevents the memory
for the transaction pool from being reused for other connections.

As well, this update addresses two bugs in the Mandriva 2006 Apache
packges where apachectl was missing and also a segfault that occured
when using the mod_ldap module.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.0
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:P)
