Publication date: 01 Jul 2013
Type: security
Affected Mageia releases : 2 , 3
CVE: CVE-2013-2178

Description

Krzysztof Katowicz-Kowalewski discovered a vulnerability in Fail2ban, a log
monitoring and system which can act on attack by preventing hosts to connect
to specified services using the local firewall.

When using Fail2ban to monitor Apache logs, improper input validation in log
parsing could enable a remote attacker to trigger an IP ban on arbitrary
addresses, thus causing a denial of service (CVE-2013-2178).
