Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2004-015: httpd

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the httpd packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated httpd packages that fix two minor security issues in the Apache Web
server are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.

The Apache HTTP Server is a powerful, full-featured, efficient, and
freely-available Web server.

An issue in the handling of regular expressions from configuration files
was discovered in releases of the Apache HTTP Server version 2.0 prior to
2.0.48. To exploit this issue a possible hacker would need to have the ability
to write to Apache configuration files such as .htaccess or httpd.conf. A
carefully-crafted configuration file can cause an exploitable buffer
overflow and would permit the attacker to execute arbitrary code in the
context of the server (in default configurations as the 'apache' user).
The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
assigned the name CVE-2003-0542 to this issue.

Users of the Apache HTTP Server should upgrade to these erratum packages,
which contain backported patches correcting these issues, and are applied
to Apache version 2.0.46. This update also includes fixes for a number of
minor bugs found in this version of the Apache HTTP Server.
