[slackware-security] apache+mod_ssl (SSA:2004-305-01)

New apache packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0, 9.1,
10.0, and -current to fix a security issue. Apache has been
upgraded to version 1.3.33 which fixes a buffer overflow which may
allow local users to execute arbitrary code as the apache user.

The mod_ssl package has also been upgraded to version
2.8.22_1.3.33.

More details about this issue may be found in the Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:

http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CAN-2004-0940

Here are the details from the Slackware 10.0 ChangeLog:
+————————–+
patches/packages/apache-1.3.33-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to
apache-1.3.33.
This fixes one new security issue (the first issue, CAN-2004-0492,
was fixed in apache-1.3.33). The second bug fixed in 1.3.3
(CAN-2004-0940) allows a local user who can create SSI documents to
become “nobody”. The amount of mischief they could cause as nobody
seems low at first glance, but it might allow them to use kill or
killall as nobody to try to create a DoS. Mention PHP’s mhash
dependency in httpd.conf (thanks to Jakub Jankowski).
(* Security fix *)
patches/packages/mod_ssl-2.8.22_1.3.33-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to

If necessary, restore any mod_ssl config files.

Finally, restart apache:

# apachectl start

Or, if you’re running a secure server with mod_ssl:

# apachectl startssl
