Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2005:155: 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-2005:155 (apache2).



Integer overflow in pcre_compile.c in Perl Compatible Regular Expressions
(PCRE) before 6.2, as used in multiple products, permits attackers to execute
arbitrary code via quantifier values in regular expressions, which leads to a
heap-based buffer overflow.

The apache2 packages, as shipped, were built using a private copy of pcre.

The updated packages have been rebuilt against the system pcre libs to correct
this problem. 10.1 and 10.2/LE2005 are already built against the system pcre.
