Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : apache (MDKSA-2004:134)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 15739


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


A possible buffer overflow exists in the get_tag() function of mod_include, and if SSI (Server Side Includes) are enabled, a local attacker may be able to run arbitrary code with the rights of an httpd child process. This could be done with a special HTML document using malformed SSI.

The updated packages have been patched to prevent this problem.


Update the affected packages.
