Vulnerability Assessment Details

[GLSA-200602-03] Apache: Multiple vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Apache: Multiple vulnerabilities

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200602-03
(Apache: Multiple vulnerabilities)


Apache's mod_imap fails to properly sanitize the "Referer"
directive of imagemaps in some cases, leaving the HTTP Referer header
unescaped. A flaw in mod_ssl can lead to a NULL pointer dereference if
the site uses a custom "Error 400" document. These vulnerabilities were
reported by Marc Cox and Hartmut Keil, respectively.

Impact

A remote attacker could exploit mod_imap to inject arbitrary HTML
or JavaScript into a user's browser to gather sensitive information.
Attackers could also cause a Denial of Service on hosts using the SSL
module (Apache 2.0.x only).

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Solution:
All Apache users should upgrade to the latest version, depending
on whether they still use the old configuration style
(/etc/apache/conf/*.conf) or the new one (/etc/apache2/httpd.conf).
2.0.x users, new style config:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-www/apache-2.0.55-r1"
2.0.x users, old style config:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "=net-www/apache-2.0.54-r16"
1.x users, new style config:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "=net-www/apache-1.3.34-r11"
1.x users, old style config:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "=net-www/apache-1.3.34-r2"
