Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : apache (MDVSA-2014:065)

Synopsis :

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

Description :

Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in apache (ASF
HTTPD) :

XML parsing code in mod_dav incorrectly calculates the end of the
string when removing leading spaces and places a NUL character outside
the buffer, causing random crashes. This XML parsing code is only used
with DAV provider modules that support DeltaV, of which the only
publicly released provider is mod_dav_svn (CVE-2013-6438).

A flaw was found in mod_log_config. A remote attacker could send a
specific truncated cookie causing a crash. This crash would only be a
denial of service if using a threaded MPM (CVE-2014-0098).

The updated packages have been upgraded to the latest 2.2.27 version
which is not vulnerable to these issues.
