openSUSE 10 Security Update : libapr-util1 (libapr-util1-6288)

High Nessus Plugin ID 42010


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


This update of libapr-util1 fixes a memory consumption bug in the XML parser that can cause a remote denial-of-service vulnerability in applications using APR (WebDAV for example) (CVE-2009-1955).
Additionally a one byte buffer overflow in function apr_brigade_vprintf() (CVE-2009-1956) and buffer underflow in function apr_strmatch_precompile() (CVE-2009-0023) was fixed too. Depending on the application using this function it can lead to remote denial of service or information leakage.


Update the affected libapr-util1 packages.
