SUSE Security Update: Security update for the Apache Web Server ______________________________________________________________________________ Announcement ID: SUSE-SU-2014:0967-1 Rating: important References: #859916 #869105 #869106 #887765 #887768 Cross-References: CVE-2013-6438 CVE-2014-0098 CVE-2014-0226 CVE-2014-0231 Affected Products: SUSE Linux Enterprise Software Development Kit 11 SP3 SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP3 for VMware SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP3 ______________________________________________________________________________ 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) Security Issues references: * CVE-2014-0226 <http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2014-0226> * CVE-2013-6438 <http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2013-6438> * CVE-2014-0098 <http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2014-0098> * CVE-2014-0231 <http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2014-0231> Patch Instructions: To install this SUSE Security Update use YaST online_update.
