Apache2 security update for Debian 7 LTS

Package : apache2
Version : 2.2.22-13+deb7u13
CVE ID : CVE-2017-15710 CVE-2018-1301 CVE-2018-1312
Debian Bug :

Several vulnerabilities have been found in the Apache HTTPD server.


Alex Nichols and Jakob Hirsch reported that mod_authnz_ldap, if
configured with AuthLDAPCharsetConfig, could cause an of bound write
if supplied with a crafted Accept-Language header. This could
potentially be used for a Denial of Service attack.


Robert Swiecki reported that a specially crafted request could have
crashed the Apache HTTP Server, due to an out of bound access after
a size limit is reached by reading the HTTP header.

Nicolas Daniels discovered that when generating an HTTP Digest
authentication challenge, the nonce sent by mod_auth_digest to
prevent reply attacks was not correctly generated using a
pseudo-random seed. In a cluster of servers using a common Digest
authentication configuration, HTTP requests could be replayed across
servers by an attacker without detection.

For Debian 7 "Wheezy", these problems have been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your apache2 packages.
