Security problems that were fixed include: - cross site scripting problem when processing the 'Expect' header (CVE-2006-3918) (Apache 1 only) - cross site scripting problem in mod_imap (CVE-2007-5000) (Apache 1 and 2) - cross site scripting problem in mod_status (CVE-2007-6388) (Apache 1 and 2) - cross site scripting problem in the ftp proxy module (CVE-2008-0005) (Apache 1 and 2) - cross site scripting problem in the error page for status code 413 (CVE-2007-6203) (Apache 2) - cross site scripting problem in mod_proxy_balancer (CVE-2007-6421) (Apache 2) - A flaw in mod_proxy_balancer allowed attackers to crash apache (CVE-2007-6422) (Apache 2) 2) Solution or Work-Around There is no known workaround, please install the update packages. 3) Special Instructions and Notes Please close and restart all running instances of Apache after the update. 4) Package Location and Checksums The preferred method for installing security updates is to use the YaST Online Update (YOU) tool. YOU detects which updates are required and automatically performs the necessary steps to verify and install them. Alternatively, download the update packages for your distribution manually and verify their integrity by the methods listed in Section 6 of this announcement. Then install the packages using the command rpm -Fhv <file.rpm> to apply the update, replacing <file.rpm> with the filename of the downloaded RPM package. x86 Platform: openSUSE 10.2: f03e4b8274d7152b45efd72e7cde61b5 ef8e006c4acfea843329bf2fc12b79fd 51ecfcb9bb6d8c8f08efc97d70b8abbe ce37cfd168b627b540e957da18e5ec8f 0484c1e9d00bd24b5152c562da9ba047 b19e229f483a737b25f2aa53c190f92a SUSE LINUX 10.1: 06c0701d4bd315fb0f644b4fb30d8a95 45718ef5161e3544321676e3dd8eca64 65bdf31d9f940c0b96f7732d0eaf9e0b f8e44ce88c837172d82871bebb06ffd4 526d93881e73786ee7f00ef21936ddd0 1b42cc7478d521000b6566bec22d4109 openSUSE 10.3: 2922d4f0980462aa93cc93f74001f7c8 e80c2f655b566a82ebe3a0d8b95b365e a0f13f91c739c7e8deed206136d710ae 5970a02072fa94016f9317641c66bbf5 5b74451cf3b6d4c82da35b3a20cd6e4a fecb129d6f984f502f4b96e6e74a1a4e d5f5ff376fbe11104ee244b5fbbb3e06 Power PC Platform: openSUSE 10.3: a2f1e111c2f22510e37c5c6aa31644c7 992fe3cb04a01a3f20ef149f22ad8dec 4a1c3ecbd61659cae402818e36c6c849 2fd3d31bea6ac3a624816f96418c8abb a6b81c7bba5e2ee49132c4e9b04849ba d23423196ff4f33d6f3aafe42a2edb88 98eae0b512e9758763725ecf48e87154 openSUSE 10.2: 01639c47e83d965858231060b99f163a f0c506948d4662ccf850c3ef784aeb10 7720848272448f257a9d8a5492d59119 bb9a072748358dbd84e9a496a634aa3a 4cab7f565ef9b5ba23c5158b7fa16245 71774427d3c37bf7dc3dfbdd475a3499 SUSE LINUX 10.1: f2a8afbab90fbd03ea8f197a5ce8f65e 44f8fe684f1eab3f9a6ebb65087de90b 1fe8f99590d355d60ed4cd653b23a6d7 2270c3c1dbddf55952d12c00e5e69217 81b0ded89d7109bd790081d7e734b780 d13888fba051f3d508ee8baeca99bf96 x86-64 Platform: openSUSE 10.2: cb086d72cfa22d69ffb77401a3873b27 b13ea6a67a114d197e0f97cf83fb1712 6721aef0cdabf944ffdc7917bafa22db 475b95ef58b8078af54e6e0051d340c4 66683396a06e14ab0a6fafd3af1c1cd3 260c25e62faf98def97d7f227d931545 SUSE LINUX 10.1: 391a67b5fbcd657e2ecfba1a459057b2 e78d919d97960714f0bdff45cf984b70 52ee6e668465921cedb8ec6db723180b 8400d2e78b1c2edc522c65a1b099f396 17eef4da8eb3dd2eccace560d7a14e0e da7b31c3508caf37b650e9cf47359098 openSUSE 10.3: 9ff3ba6a589b6e79f603828937c5c126 56b23bc76fbfb0bc0d98b11c63daaf36 55ce8aaf6bc7c097999a93efe99da704 1c2d0b400948e83773ba08127ba7fa82 537ef6542894bf7ad0bdc72ea9e73be7 a9d11f6df973e9e71889acfd36ec49c3 a51618285183cd0b97075be8436ea697 Sources: openSUSE 10.3: 9ac4cf97f58360c61b17b177a72df991 openSUSE 10.2: 10a8ee22535b31519d2ba876c31d5271 SUSE LINUX 10.1: 66e2fed2bd179c17fed7b931900ef0dc Our maintenance customers are notified individually.

The authenticity and integrity of a SUSE security announcement is guaranteed by a cryptographic signature in each announcement. All SUSE security announcements are published with a valid signature. To verify the signature of the announcement, save it as text into a file and run the command gpg --verify <file> replacing <file> with the name of the file where you saved the announcement. The output for a valid signature looks like: gpg: Signature made <DATE> using RSA key ID 3D25D3D9 gpg: Good signature from "SuSE Security Team <>" where <DATE> is replaced by the date the document was signed. If the security team's key is not contained in your key ring, you can import it from the first installation CD. To import the key, use the command gpg --import gpg-pubkey-3d25d3d9-36e12d04.asc - Package authenticity verification: SUSE update packages are available on many mirror FTP servers all over the world. While this service is considered valuable and important to the free and open source software community, the authenticity and the integrity of a package needs to be verified to ensure that it has not been tampered with. There are two verification methods that can be used independently from each other to prove the authenticity of a downloaded file or RPM package: 1) Using the internal gpg signatures of the rpm package 2) MD5 checksums as provided in this announcement 1) The internal rpm package signatures provide an easy way to verify the authenticity of an RPM package. Use the command rpm -v --checksig <file.rpm> to verify the signature of the package, replacing <file.rpm> with the filename of the RPM package downloaded. The package is unmodified if it contains a valid signature from with the key ID 9C800ACA. This key is automatically imported into the RPM database (on RPMv4-based distributions) and the gpg key ring of 'root' during installation. You can also find it on the first installation CD and at the end of this announcement. 2) If you need an alternative means of verification, use the md5sum command to verify the authenticity of the packages. Execute the command md5sum <filename.rpm> after you downloaded the file from a SUSE FTP server or its mirrors. Then compare the resulting md5sum with the one that is listed in the SUSE security announcement. Because the announcement containing the checksums is cryptographically signed (by, the checksums show proof of the authenticity of the package if the signature of the announcement is valid. Note that the md5 sums published in the SUSE Security Announcements are valid for the respective packages only. Newer versions of these packages cannot be verified. - SUSE runs two security mailing lists to which any interested party may subscribe: - General Linux and SUSE security discussion. All SUSE security announcements are sent to this list. To subscribe, send an e-mail to <>. - SUSE's announce-only mailing list. Only SUSE's security announcements are sent to this list.
