| EnGarde Secure Linux Security Advisory                October 29, 2002 |
| http://www.engardelinux.org/                          ESA-20021029-027 |
|                                                                        |
| Package: apache                                                        |
| Summary: mod_ssl cross-site scripting vulnerability.                   |
+------------------------------------------------------------------------+

  EnGarde Secure Linux is a secure distribution of Linux that features
  improved access control, host and network intrusion detection, Web
  based secure remote management, complete e-commerce using AllCommerce,
  and integrated open source security tools.

OVERVIEW
- --------
  This update fixes a cross-site scripting vulnerability in mod_ssl
  where, under certain circumstances, Apache will use the client supplied
  hostname:port pair.

  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org/) has
  assigned the name CAN-2002-1157 to this issue.

SOLUTION
- --------
  Users of the EnGarde Professional edition can use the Guardian Digital
  Secure Network to update their systems automatically.

  EnGarde Community users should upgrade to the most recent version
  as outlined in this advisory.  Updates may be obtained from:

    ftp://ftp.engardelinux.org/pub/engarde/stable/updates/
    http://ftp.engardelinux.org/pub/engarde/stable/updates/

  Before upgrading the package, the machine must either:

    a) be booted into a "standard" kernel; or
    b) have LIDS disabled.

  To disable LIDS, execute the command:

    # /sbin/lidsadm -S -- -LIDS_GLOBAL

  To install the updated package, execute the command:

    # rpm -Uvh files

  You must now update the LIDS configuration by executing the command:

    # /usr/sbin/config_lids.pl

  To re-enable LIDS (if it was disabled), execute the command:

    # /sbin/lidsadm -S -- +LIDS_GLOBAL

  To verify the signatures of the updated packages, execute the command:

    # rpm -Kv files

UPDATED PACKAGES
- ----------------
  These updated packages are for EnGarde Secure Linux Community
  Edition.

  Source Packages:

    SRPMS/apache-1.3.27-1.0.33.src.rpm
      MD5 Sum: e25cad2389a16e29ea2c892fcdfea172

  Binary Packages:

+------------------------------------------------------------------------+

  EnGarde Secure Linux is a secure distribution of Linux that features
  improved access control, host and network intrusion detection, Web
  based secure remote management, complete e-commerce using AllCommerce,
  and integrated open source security tools.

OVERVIEW
- --------
  While reviewing the syslog-ng fixes made in ESA-20021016-025, Sebastian
  Krahmer discovered that the fixes were not sufficient.  This update does
  a better job of fixing the buffer overflow and supersedes
  ESA-20021016-025.

SOLUTION
- --------
  Users of the EnGarde Professional edition can use the Guardian Digital
  Secure Network to update their systems automatically.

  EnGarde Community users should upgrade to the most recent version
  as outlined in this advisory.  Updates may be obtained from:

    ftp://ftp.engardelinux.org/pub/engarde/stable/updates/

  To disable LIDS, execute the command:

    # /sbin/lidsadm -S -- -LIDS_GLOBAL

  To install the updated package, execute the command:

    # rpm -Uvh files

  You must now update the LIDS configuration by executing the command:

    # /usr/sbin/config_lids.pl
