RedHat: Moderate: apache security update Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
RedHat Linux Updated Apache httpd packages that correct two security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1. The Apache HTTP Server did not verify that a process was an Apache child process before sending it signals. A local attacker who has the ability to run scripts on the Apache HTTP Server could manipulate the scoreboard and cause arbitrary processes to be terminated, which could lead to a denial of service. This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

                   Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis:          Moderate: apache security update
Advisory ID:       RHSA-2007:0532-01
Advisory URL:      https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2007-0532.html
Issue date:        2007-06-26
Updated on:        2007-06-26
Product:           Red Hat Enterprise Linux
CVE Names:         CVE-2007-3304 CVE-2006-5752 
- ---------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Summary:

Updated Apache httpd packages that correct two security issues are now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS (Advanced Server) version 2.1 - i386, ia64
Red Hat Linux Advanced Workstation 2.1 - ia64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 2.1 - i386
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 2.1 - i386

3. Problem description:

The Apache HTTP Server is a popular Web server.

The Apache HTTP Server did not verify that a process was an Apache child
process before sending it signals. A local attacker who has the ability to
run scripts on the Apache HTTP Server could manipulate the scoreboard and
cause arbitrary processes to be terminated, which could lead to a denial of
service. (CVE-2007-3304) 

A flaw was found in the Apache HTTP Server mod_status module. Sites with
the server-status page publicly accessible and ExtendedStatus enabled were
vulnerable to a cross-site scripting attack. On Red Hat Enterprise Linux
the server-status page is not enabled by default and it is best practice to
not make this publicly available. (CVE-2006-5752)

Users of Apache should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
backported patches to correct these issues. Users should restart Apache
after installing this update.

4. Solution:

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

This update is available via Red Hat Network.  Details on how to use 
the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
http://kbase.redhat.com/faq/FAQ_58_10188

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

245111 - CVE-2007-3304 httpd scoreboard lack of PID protection
245112 - CVE-2006-5752 httpd mod_status XSS
