Debian Security Report Summary

Debian Security Advisory DSA-2989-1                                     Stefan Fritsch

Package        : apache2
CVE ID         : CVE-2014-0118 CVE-2014-0226 CVE-2014-0231

Several security issues were found in the Apache HTTP server.


    The DEFLATE input filter (inflates request bodies) in mod_deflate
    allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (resource
    consumption) via crafted request data that decompresses to a much
    larger size.


    A race condition was found in mod_status. An attacker able to
    access a public server status page on a server could send carefully
    crafted requests which could lead to a heap buffer overflow,
    causing denial of service, disclosure of sensitive information, or
    potentially the execution of arbitrary code.


    A flaw was found in mod_cgid. If a server using mod_cgid hosted
    CGI scripts which did not consume standard input, a remote attacker
    could cause child processes to hang indefinitely, leading to denial
    of service.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
version 2.2.22-13+deb7u3.

For the testing distribution (jessie), these problems will be fixed in
version 2.4.10-1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 2.4.10-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your apache2 packages.
