Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA131] DSA-131-1 apache

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-131-1 apache

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Mark Litchfield found a denial of service attack in the Apache
web-server. While investigating the problem the Apache Software
Foundation discovered that the code for handling invalid requests which
use chunked encoding also might permit arbitrary code execution on 64
bit architectures.
This has been fixed in version 1.3.9-14.1 of the Debian apache package,
as well as upstream versions 1.3.26 and 2.0.37. We strongly recommend
that you upgrade your apache package immediately.
The package upgrade does not restart the apache server automatically,
this will have to be done manually. Please make sure your
configuration is correct ("apachectl configtest" will verify that for
you) and restart it using "/etc/init.d/apache restart"
