Mandrake A number of vulnerabilities were discovered in Apache versions prior to 1.3.27.

                Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory
________________________________________________________________________

Package name:           apache
Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2002:067
Date:                   October 15th, 2002
Affected versions:      7.2, 8.0, 8.1, 8.2, 9.0, 
                        Single Network Firewall 7.2
________________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

 A number of vulnerabilities were discovered in Apache versions prior to
 1.3.27.  The first is regarding the use of shared memory (SHM) in
 Apache.  An attacker that is able to execute code as the UID of the
 webserver (typically "apache") is able to send arbitrary processes a
 USR1 signal as root.  Using this vulnerability, the attacker can also
 cause the Apache process to continously span more children processes,
 thus causing a local DoS.  Another vulnerability was discovered by
 Matthew Murphy regarding a cross site scripting vulnerability in the
 standard 404 error page.  Finally, some buffer overflows were found in
 the "ab" benchmark program that is included with Apache.

 All of these vulnerabilities were fixed in Apache 1.3.27; the packages
 provided have these fixes applied.

If you want to upgrade manually, download the updated package from one 
of our FTP server mirrors and upgrade with "rpm -Fvh *.rpm".  A list of
FTP mirrors can be obtained from:

   http://www.mandrakesecure.net/en/ftp.php

Please verify the update prior to upgrading to ensure the integrity of
the downloaded package.  You can do this with the command:

  rpm --checksig 

All packages are signed by MandrakeSoft for security.  You can obtain
the GPG public key of the Mandrake Linux Security Team from:

  https://www.mandrakesecure.net/RPM-GPG-KEYS

Please be aware that sometimes it takes the mirrors a few hours to 
update.
