This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update of the Apache webserver fixes various security issues :

- the option IncludesNOEXEC could be bypassed via
.htaccess (CVE-2009-1195)

- mod_proxy could run into an infinite loop when used as
reverse proxy (CVE-2009-1890)

- mod_deflate continued to compress large files even after
a network connection was closed, causing mod_deflate to
consume large amounts of CPU (CVE-2009-1891)

- The ap_proxy_ftp_handler function in
modules/proxy/proxy_ftp.c in the mod_proxy_ftp module
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)

- access restriction bypass in mod_proxy_ftp module
(CVE-2009-3095)
