Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : apache (MDVSA-2014:065)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 73128
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) :

XML parsing code in mod_dav incorrectly calculates the end of the string when removing leading spaces and places a NUL character outside the buffer, causing random crashes. This XML parsing code is only used with DAV provider modules that support DeltaV, of which the only publicly released provider is mod_dav_svn (CVE-2013-6438).

A flaw was found in mod_log_config. A remote attacker could send a specific truncated cookie causing a crash. This crash would only be a denial of service if using a threaded MPM (CVE-2014-0098).

The updated packages have been upgraded to the latest 2.2.27 version which is not vulnerable to these issues.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
