Vulnerability Assessment Details

Fedora Core 4 2006-862: httpd

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the httpd package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory FEDORA-2006-862 (httpd).

The Apache HTTP Server is a powerful, full-featured, efficient, and
freely-available Web server. The Apache HTTP Server is also the
most popular Web server on the Internet.

Update Information:

This update fixes a security issue in the mod_rewrite module.

Mark Dowd of McAfee Avert Labs reported an off-by-one
security problem in the LDAP scheme handling of the
mod_rewrite module. Where RewriteEngine was enabled, and for
certain RewriteRules, this could lead to a pointer being
written out of bounds. (CVE-2006-3747)

The ability to exploit this issue is dependent on the stack
layout for a particular compiled version of mod_rewrite.
The Fedora project has analyzed Fedora Core 4 and 5 binaries
and acertaind that these distributions are vulnerable to
this issue. However this flaw does not affect a default
installation of Fedora Core
users who do not use, or have
not enabled, the Rewrite module are not affected by this
issue.
