Synopsis :

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

Description :

Multiple vulnerabilities has been discovered and corrected in
apache-mod_security :

ModSecurity before 2.6.6, when used with PHP, does not properly handle
single quotes not at the beginning of a request parameter value in the
Content-Disposition field of a request with a multipart/form-data
Content-Type header, which allows remote attackers to bypass filtering
rules and perform other attacks such as cross-site scripting (XSS)
attacks. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incomplete fix
for CVE-2009-5031 (CVE-2012-2751).

ModSecurity <= 2.6.8 is vulnerable to multipart/invalid part ruleset
bypass, this was fixed in 2.7.0 (released on2012-10-16)
(CVE-2012-4528).

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.

Solution :

Update the affected apache-mod_security and / or mlogc packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.0
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:N)
CVSS Temporal Score : 4.3
