Debian DSA-1312-1 : libapache-mod-jk - programming error

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 25556


The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.


It was discovered that the Apache 1.3 connector for the Tomcat Java servlet engine decoded request URLs multiple times, which can lead to information disclosure.


Upgrade the libapache-mod-jk package.

For the oldstable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in version 1.2.5-2sarge1. An updated package for powerpc is not yet available due to problems with the build host. It will be provided later.

For the stable distribution (etch) this problem has been fixed in version 1.2.18-3etch1.
