moderate: apr_fnmatch flaw leads to mod_autoindex remote DoS CVE-2011-0419

A flaw was found in the apr_fnmatch() function of the bundled APR library. Where mod_autoindex is enabled, and a directory indexed by mod_autoindex contained files with sufficiently long names, a remote attacker could send a carefully crafted request which would cause excessive CPU usage. This could be used in a denial of service attack.

Workaround: Setting the 'IgnoreClient' option to the 'IndexOptions' directive disables processing of the client-supplied request query arguments, preventing this attack.

Resolution: Update APR to release 0.9.20 (to be bundled with httpd 2.0.65)

important: mod_isapi module unload flaw CVE-2010-0425

A flaw was found with within mod_isapi which would attempt to unload the ISAPI dll when it encountered various error states. This could leave the callbacks in an undefined state and result in a segfault. On Windows platforms using mod_isapi, a remote attacker could send a malicious request to trigger this issue, and as win32 MPM runs only one process, this would result in a denial of service, and potentially allow arbitrary code execution.

low: apr_bridage_split_line DoS CVE-2010-1623

A flaw was found in the apr_brigade_split_line() function of the bundled APR-util library, used to process non-SSL requests. A remote attacker could send requests, carefully crafting the timing of individual bytes, which would slowly consume memory, potentially leading to a denial of service.

low: APR apr_palloc heap overflow CVE-2009-2412

A flaw in apr_palloc() in the bundled copy of APR could cause heap overflows in programs that try to apr_palloc() a user controlled size. The Apache HTTP Server itself does not pass unsanitized user-provided sizes to this function, so it could only be triggered through some other application which uses apr_palloc() in a vulnerable way.

low: Subrequest handling of request headers (mod_headers) CVE-2010-0434

A flaw in the core subrequest process code was fixed, to always provide a shallow copy of the headers_in array to the subrequest, instead of a pointer to the parent request's array as it had for requests without request bodies. This meant all modules such as mod_headers which may manipulate the input headers for a subrequest would poison the parent request in two ways, one by modifying the parent request, which might not be intended, and second by leaving pointers to modified header fields in memory allocated to the subrequest scope, which could be freed before the main request processing was finished, resulting in a segfault or in revealing data from another request on threaded servers, such as the worker or winnt MPMs.
