Updated apache packages fix security vulnerabilities

Publication date: 26 Jul 2013
Type: security
Affected Mageia releases : 3
CVE: CVE-2013-1896 , CVE-2013-2249


Updated apache packages fix security vulnerabilities:

mod_dav.c in the Apache HTTP Server before 2.4.6 does not properly
determine whether DAV is enabled for a URI, which allows remote
attackers to cause a denial of service (segmentation fault) via a
MERGE request in which the URI is configured for handling by the
mod_dav_svn module, but a certain href attribute in XML data refers
to a non-DAV URI (CVE-2013-1896).

An unspecified error in Apache HTTP Server within the mod_session_dbd
module related to the handling of the dirty flag during saving of the
sessions has an unknown impact and remote attack vector (CVE-2013-2249).

Also, a minor issue causing httpd to not be restarted when installing
or upgrading certain web applications, as well as an issue with the
web application configuration files when upgrading from Mageia 2, both
due to the moving of web applications configuration files to the
/etc/httpd/conf/sites.d directory in Mageia 3, have been corrected.
