Package name apache
Date July 4th, 2007
Advisory ID MDKSA-2007:142
Affected versions CS3.0
Synopsis Updated apache packages fix multiple security issues

Problem Description

A vulnerability was discovered in the the Apache mod_status module
that could lead to a cross-site scripting attack on sites where the
server-status page was publically accessible and ExtendedStatus was
enabled (CVE-2006-5752).

The Apache server also did not verify that a process was an Apache
child process before sending it signals. A local attacker with the
ability to run scripts on the server could manipulate the scoreboard
and cause arbitrary processes to be terminated (CVE-2007-3304).

Updated packages have been patched to prevent the above issues.
