Updated apache packages fix CVE-2014-8109

Publication date: 07 Jan 2015
Modification date: 07 Jan 2015
Type: security
Affected Mageia releases : 4
CVE: CVE-2014-8109


Updated apache packages fix security vulnerability:

mod_lua.c in the mod_lua module in the Apache HTTP Server through 2.4.10 does
not support an httpd configuration in which the same Lua authorization
provider is used with different arguments within different contexts, which
allows remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions in
opportunistic circumstances by leveraging multiple Require directives, as
demonstrated by a configuration that specifies authorization for one group to
access a certain directory, and authorization for a second group to access a
second directory (CVE-2014-8109).
