FreeBSD : mod_jk -- long URL stack overflow vulnerability (cf86c644-cb6c-11db-8e9d-000c6ec775d9)

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related
updates.

Description :

TippingPoint and The Zero Day Initiative reports :

This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code
on vulnerable installations of Apache Tomcat JK Web Server Connector.
Authentication is not required to exploit this vulnerability.

The specific flaw exists in the URI handler for the mod_jk.so library,
map_uri_to_worker(), defined in native/common/jk_uri_worker_map.c.
When parsing a long URL request, the URI worker map routine performs
an unsafe memory copy. This results in a stack overflow condition
which can be leveraged to execute arbitrary code.
