GLSA-200602-03 : Apache: Multiple vulnerabilities

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 20874


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


The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200602-03 (Apache: Multiple vulnerabilities)

Apache's mod_imap fails to properly sanitize the 'Referer' directive of imagemaps in some cases, leaving the HTTP Referer header unescaped. A flaw in mod_ssl can lead to a NULL pointer dereference if the site uses a custom 'Error 400' document. These vulnerabilities were reported by Marc Cox and Hartmut Keil, respectively.
Impact :

A remote attacker could exploit mod_imap to inject arbitrary HTML or JavaScript into a user's browser to gather sensitive information.
Attackers could also cause a Denial of Service on hosts using the SSL module (Apache 2.0.x only).
Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.


All Apache users should upgrade to the latest version, depending on whether they still use the old configuration style (/etc/apache/conf/*.conf) or the new one (/etc/apache2/httpd.conf).
2.0.x users, new style config:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=www-servers/apache-2.0.55-r1' 2.0.x users, old style config:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '=www-servers/apache-2.0.54-r16' 1.x users, new style config:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '=www-servers/apache-1.3.34-r11' 1.x users, old style config:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '=www-servers/apache-1.3.34-r2'
