High Nessus Plugin ID 42253


The remote SuSE 10 host is missing a security-related patch.


This update of the Apache webserver fixes various security issues :

- the option IncludesNOEXEC could be bypassed via .htaccess. (CVE-2009-1195)

- mod_proxy could run into an infinite loop when used as reverse proxy. (CVE-2009-1890)

- mod_deflate continued to compress large files even after a network connection was closed, causing mod_deflate to consume large amounts of CPU. (CVE-2009-1891)

- The ap_proxy_ftp_handler function in modules/proxy/proxy_ftp.c in the mod_proxy_ftp module allows remote FTP servers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and child process crash) via a malformed reply to an EPSV command. (CVE-2009-3094)

- access restriction bypass in mod_proxy_ftp module.

Also a incompatibility between mod_cache and mod_rewrite was fixed.
