Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2004-308
2004-09-16
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Product : Fedora Core 2
Name : apr-util
Version : 0.9.4
Release : 14.2
Summary : Apache Portable Runtime Utility library
Description :
The mission of the Apache Portable Runtime (APR) is to provide a free library of C data structures and routines. This library contains additional utility interfaces for APR; including support for XML, LDAP, database interfaces, URI parsing and more.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

Testing using the Codenomicon HTTP Test Tool performed by the Apache Software Foundation security group and Red Hat uncovered an input validation issue in the IPv6 URI parsing routines in the apr-util library. If a remote attacker sent a request including a carefully crafted URI, an httpd child process could be made to crash. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-0786 to this issue.

This update includes a backported fix for this issue.
