Fedora Core 2 : apr-util-0.9.4-14.2 (2004-308)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 14765
SynopsisThe remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.
DescriptionTesting using the Codenomicon HTTP Test Tool performed by the Apache Software Foundation security group and Red Hat uncovered an input validation issue in the IPv6 URI parsing routines in the apr-util library. If a remote attacker sent a request including a carefully crafted URI, an httpd child process could be made to crash. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2004-0786 to this issue.
This update includes a backported fix for this issue.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected apr-util, apr-util-debuginfo and / or apr-util-devel packages.
