Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : varnish (MDVSA-2014:036)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 72551


The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


Updated varnish packages fix security vulnerabilities :

Varnish before 3.0.5 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (child-process crash and temporary caching outage) via a GET request with trailing whitespace characters and no URI (CVE-2013-4484).

Also, the services have been converted from SysV init scripts to systemd-native services, which should allow for more consistent behavior.


Update the affected lib64varnish-devel, lib64varnish1 and / or varnish packages.
