Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2004:096: apache2

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the apache2 package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2004:096 (apache2).

Two Denial of Service conditions were discovered in the input filter of mod_ssl,
the module that enables apache to handle HTTPS requests.
Another vulnerability was discovered by the ASF security team using the
Codenomicon HTTP Test Tool. This vulnerability, in the apr-util library, can
possibly lead to arbitray code execution if certain non-default conditions are
met (enabling the AP_ENABLE_EXCEPTION_HOOK define).
As well, the SITIC have discovered a buffer overflow when Apache expands
environment variables in configuration files such as .htaccess and httpd.conf,
which can lead to possible privilege escalation. This can only be done, however,
if a possible hacker is able to place malicious configuration files on the server.
Finally, a crash condition was discovered in the mod_dav module by Julian
Reschke, where sending a LOCK refresh request to an indirectly locked resource
could crash the server.
The updated packages have been patched to protect against these vulnerabilities.
