Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2003:103: apache

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the apache package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2003:103 (apache).

A buffer overflow in mod_alias and mod_rewrite was discovered in Apache versions
1.3.19 and earlier as well as Apache 2.0.47 and earlier. This happens when a
regular expression with more than 9 captures is confined. A possible hacker would have
to create a carefully crafted configuration file (.htaccess or httpd.conf) in
order to exploit these problems.
As well, another buffer overflow in Apache 2.0.47 and earlier in mod_cgid's
mishandling of CGI redirect paths could result in CGI output going to the wrong
client when a threaded MPM is used.
Apache version 2.0.48 and 1.3.29 were released upstream to correct these bugs

backported patches have been applied to the provided packages.
