medium Nessus Plugin ID 50393

Language:

New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

This update includes the latest stable release of the APR-util library.

A memory leak in the apr_brigade_split_line() function allowed a denial of service attack network services using this function, such as the Apache HTTP Server. (CVE-2010-1623)

Bug fixes to the 'thread pool' interfaces and ODBC support are also included.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Update the affected apr-util package.
