medium Nessus Plugin ID 28282


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


Several bugs were fixed in the Apache2 webserver :

These include the following security issues :

- CVE-2006-5752: mod_status: Fix a possible XSS attack against a site with a public server-status page and ExtendedStatus enabled, for browsers which perform charset 'detection'.

- CVE-2007-1863: mod_cache: Prevent a segmentation fault if attributes are listed in a Cache-Control header without any value.

- CVE-2007-3304: prefork, worker, event MPMs: Ensure that the parent process cannot be forced to kill processes outside its process group.

- CVE-2007-3847: mod_proxy: Prevent reading past the end of a buffer when parsing date-related headers. PR 41144.

- CVE-2007-4465: mod_autoindex: Add in ContentType and Charset options to IndexOptions directive. This allows the admin to explicitly set the content-type and charset of the generated page.

and the following non-security issues :

- get_module_list: replace loadmodule.conf atomically

- Use File::Temp to create good tmpdir in logresolve.pl2 (httpd-2.x.x-logresolve.patchs)


Update the affected apache2 packages.
