Synopsis :

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update of libapr-util1 fixes a memory consumption bug in the XML
parser that can cause a remote denial-of-service vulnerability in
applications using APR (WebDAV for example) (CVE-2009-1955).
Additionally a one byte buffer overflow in function
apr_brigade_vprintf() (CVE-2009-1956) and buffer underflow in function
apr_strmatch_precompile() (CVE-2009-0023) was fixed too. Depending on
the application using this function it can lead to remote denial of
service or information leakage.

Solution :

Update the affected libapr-util1 packages.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.8
