Debian DLA-1009-1 : apache2 security update

High Nessus Plugin ID 101175

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Several vulnerabilities have been found in the Apache HTTPD server.

CVE-2017-3167

Emmanuel Dreyfus reported that the use of ap_get_basic_auth_pw() by third-party modules outside of the authentication phase may lead to authentication requirements being bypassed.

CVE-2017-3169

Vasileios Panopoulos of AdNovum Informatik AG discovered that mod_ssl may dereference a NULL pointer when third-party modules call ap_hook_process_connection() during an HTTP request to an HTTPS port leading to a denial of service.

CVE-2017-7668

Javier Jimenez reported that the HTTP strict parsing contains a flaw leading to a buffer overread in ap_find_token(). A remote attacker can take advantage of this flaw by carefully crafting a sequence of request headers to cause a segmentation fault, or to force ap_find_token() to return an incorrect value.

CVE-2017-7679

ChenQin and Hanno Boeck reported that mod_mime can read one byte past the end of a buffer when sending a malicious Content-Type response header.

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 2.2.22-13+deb7u9.

We recommend that you upgrade your apache2 packages.

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

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
