Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2006:133: 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-2006:133 (apache).

Mark Dowd, of McAffee Avert Labs, discovered a potential remotely
exploitable off-by-one flaw in Apache's mod_rewrite ldap scheme
handling.
In order for this to be exploitable, a number of conditions need to be
met including a) running a vulnerable version of Apache (1.3.28+,
2.0.46+, or 2.2.0+), b) enabling mod_rewrite, c) having a rewrite
rule that the remote user can influence the beginning of, and d) a
particular stack frame layout.
By default, RewriteEngine is not enabled in Mandriva Linux Apache
packages, and no RewriteRules are defined.
Updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
