Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2003-114: mod_auth_any

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the mod_auth_any packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated mod_auth_any packages are available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
These updated packages fix vulnerabilities associated with the manner in
which mod_auth_any escapes shell arguments when calling external programs.

The Web server module mod_auth_any permits the Apache httpd server to
call arbitrary external programs to verify user passwords.

Vulnerabilities have been found in versions of mod_auth_any included in Red
Hat Enterprise Linux concerning the method by which mod_auth_any escapes
shell arguments when calling external programs. These vulnerabilities
permit remote attackers to run arbitrary commands as the user under which
the Web server is running. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2003-0084 to these
issues.

All users are advised to upgrade to these errata packages, which change the
method by which external programs are invoked and, therefore, make these
programs invulnerable to these issues.

Red Hat would like to thank Daniel Jarboe and Maneesh Sahani for bringing
these issues to our attention.
