GLSA-200409-33 : Apache: Exposure of protected directories

High Nessus Plugin ID 14811


The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.


The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200409-33 (Apache: Exposure of protected directories)

A bug in the way Apache handles the Satisfy directive, which is used to require that certain conditions (client host, client authentication, etc) be met before access to a certain directory is granted, could allow the exposure of protected directories to unauthorized clients.
Impact :

Directories containing protected data could be exposed to all visitors to the webserver.
Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.


All Apache users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge sync # emerge -pv '>=www-servers/apache-2.0.51-r1' # emerge '>=www-servers/apache-2.0.51-r1'
