 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2012:019
 http://www.mandriva.com/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : apr
 Date    : February 14, 2012
 Affected: 2010.1, 2011., Enterprise Server 5.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability has been found and corrected in ASF APR:
 
 tables/apr_hash.c in the Apache Portable Runtime (APR) library through
 1.4.5 computes hash values without restricting the ability to trigger
 hash collisions predictably, which allows context-dependent attackers
 to cause a denial of service (CPU consumption) via crafted input to
 an application that maintains a hash table (CVE-2012-0840).
 
 APR has been upgraded to the latest version (1.4.6) which holds
 many improvments over the previous versions and is not vulnerable to
 this issue.
