medium Nessus Plugin ID 57819
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 Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in apache (ASF HTTPD) :

The log_cookie function in mod_log_config.c in the mod_log_config module in the Apache HTTP Server 2.2.17 through 2.2.21, when a threaded MPM is used, does not properly handle a \%{}C format string, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (daemon crash) via a cookie that lacks both a name and a value (CVE-2012-0021).

scoreboard.c in the Apache HTTP Server 2.2.21 and earlier might allow local users to cause a denial of service (daemon crash during shutdown) or possibly have unspecified other impact by modifying a certain type field within a scoreboard shared memory segment, leading to an invalid call to the free function (CVE-2012-0031).

protocol.c in the Apache HTTP Server 2.2.x through 2.2.21 does not properly restrict header information during construction of Bad Request (aka 400) error documents, which allows remote attackers to obtain the values of HTTPOnly cookies via vectors involving a (1) long or (2) malformed header in conjunction with crafted web script (CVE-2012-0053).

The updated packages have been upgraded to the latest 2.2.22 version which is not vulnerable to this issue.

Additionally APR and APR-UTIL has been upgraded to the latest versions 1.4.5 and 1.4.1 respectively which holds many improvments over the previous versions.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
