Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2006:007: 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-2006:007 (apache2).



A flaw was discovered in mod_imap when using the Referer directive with image
maps that could be used by a remote attacker to perform a cross- site scripting
attack, in certain site configurations, if a victim could be forced to visit a
malicious URL using certain web browsers (CVE-2005-3352). Also, a NULL pointer
dereference flaw was found in mod_ssl that affects server configurations where
an SSL virtual host was configured with access controls and a custom 400 error
document. This could permit a remote attacker to send a carefully crafted
request to trigger the issue and cause a crash, but only with the non-default
worker MPM (CVE-2005-3357). The provided packages have been patched to prevent
these problems.
