EulerOS 2.0 SP1 : httpd (EulerOS-SA-2017-1085)

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

Synopsis :

The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.

Description :

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

- It was discovered that the mod_session_crypto module of
httpd did not use any mechanisms to verify integrity of
the encrypted session data stored in the user's
browser. A remote attacker could use this flaw to
decrypt and modify session data using a padding oracle
attack. (CVE-2016-0736)

- It was discovered that the mod_auth_digest module of
httpd did not properly check for memory allocation
failures. A remote attacker could use this flaw to
cause httpd child processes to repeatedly crash if the
server used HTTP digest authentication. (CVE-2016-2161)

- It was discovered that the HTTP parser in httpd
incorrectly allowed certain characters not permitted by
the HTTP protocol specification to appear unencoded in
HTTP request headers. If httpd was used in conjunction
with a proxy or backend server that interpreted those
characters differently, a remote attacker could
possibly use this flaw to inject data into HTTP
responses, resulting in proxy cache poisoning.

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.
