Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : apache (MDVSA-2010:153)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 48347
SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionMultiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in apache :
The mod_cache and mod_dav modules in the Apache HTTP Server 2.2.x before 2.2.16 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (process crash) via a request that lacks a path (CVE-2010-1452).
mod_proxy in httpd in Apache HTTP Server 2.2.9, when running on Unix, does not close the backend connection if a timeout occurs when reading a response from a persistent connection, which allows remote attackers to obtain a potentially sensitive response intended for a different client in opportunistic circumstances via a normal HTTP request. NOTE:
this is the same issue as CVE-2010-2068, but for a different OS and set of affected versions (CVE-2010-2791).
Packages for 2009.0 are provided as of the Extended Maintenance Program. Please visit this link to learn more:
