RHEL 6 : mod_proxy_fcgi (RHSA-2015:1855)

This script is Copyright (C) 2015-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

An updated mod_proxy_fcgi package that fixes one security issue is now
available for Red Hat Ceph Storage 1.2 for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having Low security
impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which
gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in
the References section.

Red Hat Ceph Storage is a massively scalable, open, software-defined
storage platform that combines the most stable version of the Ceph
storage system with a Ceph management platform, deployment tools, and
support services.

The mod_proxy_fcgi package provides a proxy module for the Apache 2.2
HTTP server.

A buffer overflow flaw was found in mod_proxy_fcgi's handle_headers()
function. A malicious FastCGI server that httpd is configured to
connect to could send a carefully crafted response that would cause an
httpd child process handling the request to crash. (CVE-2014-3583)

All mod_proxy_fcgi users are advised to upgrade to this updated
package, which corrects this issue.
