Pardus Linux Security Advisory 2010-45            security@pardus.org.tr
------------------------------------------------------------------------
      Date: 2010-03-29
  Severity: 4
      Type: Remote

Summary
======
Multiple vulnerabilities have been  fixed  in  Apache,  where  one  has
unknown impacts and others can be exploited by malicious people to gain
access to potentially sensitive information or cause a DoS  (Denial  of
Service).


Description
==========
CVE-2009-3555:

mod_ssl: Comprehensive fix of the TLS  renegotiation  prefix  injection
attack when compiled against OpenSSL version 0.9.8m or later. Introduces

the 'SSLInsecureRenegotiation' directive to reopen  this  vulnerability
and offer unsafe legacy renegotiation with clients which do not yet

support the new secure renegotiation protocol, RFC 5746. [Joe Orton, and
with thanks to the OpenSSL Team]



CVE-2009-3555:

mod_ssl: A partial fix for the TLS renegotiation prefix injection attack
by  rejecting any  client-initiated  renegotiations.  Forcibly  disable
keepalive for the connection if there is any buffered data readable. Any
configuration which requires renegotiation  for  per-directory/location
access control is still vulnerable, unless using OpenSSL >= 0.9.8l. [Joe
Orton, Ruediger Pluem, Hartmut Keil ]



CVE-2010-0408:

mod_proxy_ajp: Respond with HTTP_BAD_REQUEST when the body is not  sent
when request headers indicate a request body is incoming; not a case of
HTTP_INTERNAL_SERVER_ERROR. [Niku Toivola ]



CVE-2010-0425:

mod_isapi: Do not  unload  an  isapi  .dll  module  until  the  request
processing is completed, avoiding orphaned  callback  pointers.  [Brett
Gervasoni , Jeff Trawick]



CVE-2010-0434:

Ensure each subrequest has a shallow copy of  headers_in  so  that  the
parent request headers  are  not  corrupted.  Elimiates  a  problematic
optimization in the case of no request  body.  PR  48359  [Jake  Scott,
William Rowe, Ruediger Pluem]


Affected packages:

    apache-2.2.15-36-11, all before 2009

    apache-2.2.15-34-12, all before 2008



Resolution
=========
There are update(s) for apache-2.2.15-36-11,  apache-2.2.15-34-12.  You
can update them via Package Manager  or  with  a  single  command  from
console:

    pisi up apache-2.2.15-36-11 apache-2.2.15-34-12
