New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it is different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 5.9

Synopsis

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

Description

A buffer overflow in mod_alias and mod_rewrite was discovered in Apache versions 1.3.19 and earlier as well as Apache 2.0.47 and earlier. This happens when a regular expression with more than 9 captures is confined. An attacker would have to create a carefully crafted configuration file (.htaccess or httpd.conf) in order to exploit these problems.

As well, another buffer overflow in Apache 2.0.47 and earlier in mod_cgid's mishandling of CGI redirect paths could result in CGI output going to the wrong client when a threaded MPM is used.

Apache version 2.0.48 and 1.3.29 were released upstream to correct these bugs; backported patches have been applied to the provided packages.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
