SuSE 11.1 Security Update : Apache2 (SAT Patch Number 5760)

This script is Copyright (C) 2012-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote SuSE 11 host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

This update of apache2 and libapr1 fixes regressions and several
security problems.

- Fixed a scoreboard corruption (shared mem segment) by
child causes crash of privileged parent (invalid free())
during shutdown. (CVE-2012-0031)

- Fixed an issue in error responses that could expose
'httpOnly' cookies when no custom ErrorDocument is
specified for status code 400'. (CVE-2012-0053)

- The 'mod_reqtimeout' module was backported from Apache
2.2.21 to help mitigate the 'Slowloris' Denial of
Service attack. You need to enable the 'mod_reqtimeout'
module in your existing apache configuration to make it
effective, e.g. in the APACHE_MODULES line in
/etc/sysconfig/apache2. For more detailed information,
check also the README file. (CVE-2007-6750)

Also the following bugs have been fixed :

- Fixed init script action 'check-reload' to avoid
potential crashes. (bnc#728876)

- An overlapping memcpy() was replaced by memmove() to
make this work with newer glibcs. (bnc#738067 /
bnc#741874)

- libapr1: reset errno to zero to not return previous
value despite good status of new operation. (bnc#739783)
