Affected Products:

______________________________________________________________________________

 

An update that solves four vulnerabilities and has one

errata is now available.

 

Description:

 

 

This update for the Apache Web Server provides the following fixes:

 

* Fixed a heap-based buffer overflow on apache module mod_status.

(bnc#887765, CVE-2014-0226)

* Properly remove whitespace characters from CDATA sections to avoid

remote denial of service by crashing the Apache Server process.

(bnc#869105, CVE-2013-6438)

* Correction to parsing of cookie content; this can lead to a crash

with a specially designed cookie sent to the server. (bnc#869106,

CVE-2014-0098)

* ECC support should not be missing. (bnc#859916)

 

This update also introduces a new configuration parameter

CGIDScriptTimeout, which defaults to the value of parameter Timeout.

CGIDScriptTimeout is set to 60s if mod_cgid is loaded/active, via

/etc/apache2/conf.d/cgid-timeout.conf. The new directive and its effect

prevent request workers to be eaten until starvation if cgi programs do

not send output back to the server within the timeout set by

CGIDScriptTimeout. (bnc#887768, CVE-2014-0231)
