Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : apache (MDVSA-2013:193)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 67253
SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA vulnerability has been found and corrected in apache (ASF HTTPD) :
mod_dav.c in the Apache HTTP Server before 2.2.25 does not properly determine whether DAV is enabled for a URI, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (segmentation fault) via a MERGE request in which the URI is configured for handling by the mod_dav_svn module, but a certain href attribute in XML data refers to a non-DAV URI (CVE-2013-1896).
The updated packages have been upgraded to the latest 2.2.25 version which is not vulnerable to this issue.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
