EulerOS 2.0 SP1 : httpd (EulerOS-SA-2016-1039)

Synopsis :

The remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.

Description :

According to the version of the httpd packages installed, the EulerOS
installation on the remote host is affected by the following
vulnerability :

- mod_lua.c in the mod_lua module in the Apache HTTP
Server 2.3.x and 2.4.x through 2.4.10 does not support
an httpd configuration in which the same Lua
authorization provider is used with different arguments
within different contexts, which allows remote
attackers to bypass intended access restrictions in
opportunistic circumstances by leveraging multiple
Require directives, as demonstrated by a configuration
that specifies authorization for one group to access a
certain directory, and authorization for a second group
to access a second directory. (CVE-2014-8109)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the EulerOS security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
