Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

Multiple vulnerabilities was discovered and corrected in apache :

The ap_proxy_ftp_handler function in modules/proxy/proxy_ftp.c in the
mod_proxy_ftp module in the Apache HTTP Server 2.0.63 and 2.2.13
allows remote FTP servers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer
dereference and child process crash) via a malformed reply to an EPSV
command (CVE-2009-3094).

The mod_proxy_ftp module in the Apache HTTP Server allows remote
attackers to bypass intended access restrictions and send arbitrary
commands to an FTP server via vectors related to the embedding of
these commands in the Authorization HTTP header, as demonstrated by a
certain module in VulnDisco Pack Professional 8.11. NOTE: as of
20090903, this disclosure has no actionable information. However,
because the VulnDisco Pack author is a reliable researcher, the issue
is being assigned a CVE identifier for tracking purposes

This update provides a solution to these vulnerabilities.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.5
