Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : apache2 (MDKSA-2005:155)

High Nessus Plugin ID 19911

Synopsis

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

Description

Integer overflow in pcre_compile.c in Perl Compatible Regular Expressions (PCRE) before 6.2, as used in multiple products, allows attackers to execute arbitrary code via quantifier values in regular expressions, which leads to a heap-based buffer overflow.

The apache2 packages, as shipped, were built using a private copy of pcre.

The updated packages have been rebuilt against the system pcre libs to correct this problem. 10.1 and 10.2/LE2005 are already built against the system pcre.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
