Red Hat Security Advisory Synopsis: Moderate: httpd security update Advisory ID: RHSA-2008:0008-01 Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2008-0008.html Issue date: 2008-01-15 CVE Names: CVE-2007-4465 CVE-2007-5000 CVE-2007-6388 CVE-2007-6421 CVE-2007-6422 CVE-2008-0005 =====================================================================
  1. Summary:

Updated Apache httpd packages that fix several security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client) - i386, x86_64 RHEL Desktop Workstation (v. 5 client) - i386, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server) - i386, ia64, ppc, s390x, x86_64

3. Description:

The Apache HTTP Server is a popular Web server.

A flaw was found in the mod_imagemap module. On sites where mod_imagemap was enabled and an imagemap file was publicly available, a cross-site scripting attack was possible. (CVE-2007-5000)

A flaw was found in the mod_autoindex module. On sites where directory listings are used, and the "AddDefaultCharset" directive has been removed from the configuration, a cross-site scripting attack might have been possible against Web browsers which do not correctly derive the response character set following the rules in RFC 2616. (CVE-2007-4465)

A flaw was found in the mod_status module. On sites where mod_status was enabled and the status pages were publicly available, a cross-site scripting attack was possible. (CVE-2007-6388)

A flaw was found in the mod_proxy_balancer module. On sites where mod_proxy_balancer was enabled, a cross-site scripting attack against an authorized user was possible. (CVE-2007-6421)

A flaw was found in the mod_proxy_balancer module. On sites where mod_proxy_balancer was enabled, an authorized user could send a carefully crafted request that would cause the Apache child process handling that request to crash. This could lead to a denial of service if using a threaded Multi-Processing Module. (CVE-2007-6422)

A flaw was found in the mod_proxy_ftp module. On sites where mod_proxy_ftp was enabled and a forward proxy was configured, a cross-site scripting attack was possible against Web browsers which do not correctly derive the response character set following the rules in RFC 2616. (CVE-2008-0005)

Users of Apache httpd should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to resolve these issues. Users should restart httpd after installing this update.
