New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

Synopsis

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

Description

A vulnerability was discovered in the the Apache mod_status module that could lead to a cross-site scripting attack on sites where the server-status page was publically accessible and ExtendedStatus was enabled (CVE-2006-5752).

A vulnerability was found in the Apache mod_cache module that could cause the httpd server child process to crash if it was sent a carefully crafted request. This could lead to a denial of service if using a threaded MPM (CVE-2007-1863).

The Apache server also did not verify that a process was an Apache child process before sending it signals. A local attacker with the ability to run scripts on the server could manipulate the scoreboard and cause arbitrary processes to be terminated (CVE-2007-3304).

Updated packages have been patched to prevent the above issues.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
