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) :

Insecure handling of LD_LIBRARY_PATH was found that could lead to the current working directory to be searched for DSOs. This could allow a local user to execute code as root if an administrator runs apachectl from an untrusted directory (CVE-2012-0883).

Possible XSS for sites which use mod_negotiation and allow untrusted uploads to locations which have MultiViews enabled (CVE-2012-2687).

The updated packages have been upgraded to the latest 2.2.23 version which is not vulnerable to these issues.

Update :

Packages for Mandriva Linux 2011 is also being provided.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
