 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2012:182
 http://www.mandriva.com/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : apache-mod_security
 Date    : December 23, 2012
 Affected: 2011.
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Multiple vulnerabilities has been discovered and corrected in
 apache-mod_security:
 
 ModSecurity before 2.6.6, when used with PHP, does not properly handle
 single quotes not at the beginning of a request parameter value in
 the Content-Disposition field of a request with a multipart/form-data
 Content-Type header, which allows remote attackers to bypass filtering
 rules and perform other attacks such as cross-site scripting (XSS)
 attacks. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incomplete
 fix for CVE-2009-5031 (CVE-2012-2751).
 
 ModSecurity <= 2.6.8 is vulnerable to multipart/invalid part
 ruleset bypass, this was fixed in 2.7.0 (released on2012-10-16)
 (CVE-2012-4528).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
