Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : apache (MDKSA-2007:140)

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


Synopsis :

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

Description :

A vulnerability was discovered in the the Apache mod_status module
that could lead to a cross-site scripting attack on sites where the
server-status page was publically accessible and ExtendedStatus was
enabled (CVE-2006-5752).

A vulnerability was found in the Apache mod_cache module that could
cause the httpd server child process to crash if it was sent a
carefully crafted request. This could lead to a denial of service if
using a threaded MPM (CVE-2007-1863).

The Apache server also did not verify that a process was an Apache
child process before sending it signals. A local attacker with the
ability to run scripts on the server could manipulate the scoreboard
and cause arbitrary processes to be terminated (CVE-2007-3304).

Updated packages have been patched to prevent the above issues.

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)
CVSS Temporal Score : 3.7
(CVSS2#E:U/RL:OF/RC:C)
Public Exploit Available : false
