Synopsis :

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

Description :

Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in apache :

mod_rewrite.c in the mod_rewrite module in the Apache HTTP Server
2.2.x before 2.2.25 writes data to a log file without sanitizing
non-printable characters, which might allow remote attackers to
execute arbitrary commands via an HTTP request containing an escape
sequence for a terminal emulator (CVE-2013-1862).

A buffer overflow when reading digest password file with very long
lines in htdigest was discovered (PR 54893).

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
