Synopsis :

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

Description :

Mark Dowd, of McAffee Avert Labs, discovered a potential remotely
exploitable off-by-one flaw in Apache's mod_rewrite ldap scheme
handling.

In order for this to be exploitable, a number of conditions need to be
met including a) running a vulnerable version of Apache (1.3.28+,
2.0.46+, or 2.2.0+), b) enabling mod_rewrite, c) having a rewrite rule
that the remote user can influence the beginning of, and d) a
particular stack frame layout.

By default, RewriteEngine is not enabled in Mandriva Linux Apache
packages, and no RewriteRules are defined.

Updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.6
