Description devnull 2015-01-07 16:31:13 UTC
apache-2.2.29 fixes some bugs and known CVEs and should be stabilized asap. At least stable for me at amd64.

Reproducible: Always
Comment 1 Jeroen Roovers gentoo-dev 2015-01-07 16:40:42 UTC
Fixed in Apache httpd 2.2.29
important: mod_cgid denial of service CVE-2014-0231 

 A flaw was found in mod_cgid. If a server using mod_cgid hosted CGI scripts which did not consume standard input, a remote attacker could cause child processes to hang indefinitely, leading to denial of service.

 Reported to security team: 16th June 2014
 Issue public: 14th July 2014
 Update Released: 3rd September 2014
 Affects: 2.2.27, 2.2.26, 2.2.25, 2.2.24, 2.2.23, 2.2.22, 2.2.21, 2.2.20, 2.2.19, 2.2.18, 2.2.17, 2.2.16, 2.2.15, 2.2.14, 2.2.13, 2.2.12, 2.2.11, 2.2.10, 2.2.9, 2.2.8, 2.2.6, 2.2.5, 2.2.4, 2.2.3, 2.2.2, 2.2.0

low: HTTP Trailers processing bypass CVE-2013-5704 

 HTTP trailers could be used to replace HTTP headers late during request processing, potentially undoing or otherwise confusing modules that examined or modified request headers earlier.

This fix adds the "MergeTrailers" directive to restore legacy behavior.

 Update Released: 3rd September 2014
 Affects: 2.2.27, 2.2.26, 2.2.25, 2.2.24, 2.2.23, 2.2.22, 2.2.21, 2.2.20, 2.2.19, 2.2.18, 2.2.17, 2.2.16, 2.2.15, 2.2.14, 2.2.13, 2.2.12, 2.2.11, 2.2.10, 2.2.9, 2.2.8, 2.2.6, 2.2.5, 2.2.4, 2.2.3, 2.2.2, 2.2.0

moderate: mod_deflate denial of service CVE-2014-0118 

 A resource consumption flaw was found in mod_deflate. If request body decompression was configured (using the "DEFLATE" input filter), a remote attacker could cause the server to consume significant memory and/or CPU resources. The use of request body decompression is not a common configuration.

 Affects: 2.2.27, 2.2.26, 2.2.25, 2.2.24, 2.2.23, 2.2.22, 2.2.21, 2.2.20, 2.2.19, 2.2.18, 2.2.17, 2.2.16, 2.2.15, 2.2.14, 2.2.13, 2.2.12, 2.2.11, 2.2.10, 2.2.9, 2.2.8, 2.2.6, 2.2.5, 2.2.4, 2.2.3, 2.2.2, 2.2.0

moderate: mod_status buffer overflow CVE-2014-0226 

 A race condition was found in mod_status. An attacker able to access a public server status page on a server using a threaded MPM could send a carefully crafted request which could lead to a heap buffer overflow. Note that it is not a default or recommended configuration to have a public accessible server status page.

Comment 2 Jeroen Roovers gentoo-dev 2015-01-07 16:42:45 UTC
The 2.4 branch should be bumped as well.

Fixed in Apache httpd 2.4.11-dev
low: mod_proxy_fcgi out-of-bounds memory read CVE-2014-3583

 An out-of-bounds memory read was found in mod_proxy_fcgi. A malicious FastCGI server could send a carefully crafted response which could lead to a crash when reading past the end of a heap memory or stack buffer. This issue affects version 2.4.10 only.

low: mod_cache crash with empty Content-Type header CVE-2014-3581 

 A NULL pointer deference was found in mod_cache. A malicious HTTP server could cause a crash in a caching forward proxy configuration. This crash would only be a denial of service if using a threaded MPM.
