Ubuntu Security Notice USN-133-1 May 26, 2005
apache vulnerability

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog)

The following packages are affected:


The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to version 1.3.31-6ubuntu0.7. In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the necessary changes.

Details follow:

A buffer overflow was discovered in the "htpasswd" utility. This could be exploited to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking htpasswd. This is only a security vulnerability if you have a website that offers a public interface to htpasswd without checking the input beforehand; however, this is very unusual.
