Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : apache2 (MDKSA-2005:233)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 20464
SynopsisThe remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA memory leak in the worker MPM in Apache 2 could allow remote attackers to cause a Denial of Service (memory consumption) via aborted commands in certain circumstances, which prevents the memory for the transaction pool from being reused for other connections.
As well, this update addresses two bugs in the Mandriva 2006 Apache packges where apachectl was missing and also a segfault that occured when using the mod_ldap module.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
