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) :

Various XSS (cross-site scripting vulnerability) flaws due to unescaped hostnames and URIs HTML output in mod_info, mod_status, mod_imagemap, mod_ldap, and mod_proxy_ftp (CVE-2012-3499).

XSS (cross-site scripting vulnerability) in mod_proxy_balancer manager interface (CVE-2012-4558).

Additionally the ASF bug 53219 was resolved which provides a way to mitigate the CRIME attack vulnerability by disabling TLS-level compression. Use the new directive SSLCompression on|off to enable or disable TLS-level compression, by default SSLCompression is turned on.

The updated packages have been upgraded to the latest 2.2.24 version which is not vulnerable to these issues.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
