Fedora Legacy Update Advisory

Synopsis: Updated Apache httpd packages fix security issues
Advisory ID: FLSA:175406
Issue date: 2006-02-18
Product: Red Hat Linux, Fedora Core
Keywords: Bugfix
CVE Names: CVE-2005-2970 CVE-2005-3352 CVE-2005-3357
---------------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Topic:

Updated Apache httpd packages that correct three security issues are now
available.

The Apache HTTP Server is a popular and freely-available Web server.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 7.3 - i386
Red Hat Linux 9 - i386
Fedora Core 1 - i386
Fedora Core 2 - i386
Fedora Core 3 - i386, x86_64

3. Problem description:

A memory leak in the worker MPM could allow remote attackers to cause a
denial of service (memory consumption) via aborted connections, which
prevents the memory for the transaction pool from being reused for other
connections. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project assigned
the name CVE-2005-2970 to this issue. This vulnerability only affects
users who are using the non-default worker MPM.

A flaw in mod_imap when using the Referer directive with image maps was
discovered. With certain site configurations, a remote attacker could
perform a cross-site scripting attack if a victim can be forced to visit
a malicious URL using certain web browsers. (CVE-2005-3352)

A NULL pointer dereference flaw in mod_ssl was discovered affecting
server configurations where an SSL virtual host is configured with
access control and a custom 400 error document. A remote attacker could
send a carefully crafted request to trigger this issue which would lead
to a crash. This crash would only be a denial of service if using the
non-default worker MPM. (CVE-2005-3357)

Users of httpd should update to these erratum packages which contain
backported patches to correct these issues.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filenames]

where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade. Only those
RPMs which are currently installed will be updated. Those RPMs which
are not installed but included in the list will not be updated. Note
that you can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only*
contains the desired RPMs.

Please note that this update is also available via yum and apt. Many
people find this an easier way to apply updates. To use yum issue:

yum update

or to use apt:

apt-get update; apt-get upgrade

This will start an interactive process that will result in the
appropriate RPMs being upgraded on your system. This assumes that you
have yum or apt-get configured for obtaining Fedora Legacy content.
Please visit http://www.fedoralegacy.org/docs for directions on how to
configure yum and apt-get.

These packages are GPG signed by Fedora Legacy for security. Our key is
available from http://www.fedoralegacy.org/about/security.php

You can verify each package with the following command:

rpm --checksig -v lt;filenamegt;

If you only wish to verify that each package has not been corrupted or
tampered with, examine only the sha1sum with the following command:

sha1sum lt;filenamegt;
