Fedora 13 : apr-util-1.3.10-1.fc13 (2010-15953)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 50393



The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


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.


Update the affected apr-util package.
