|Title:||Ubuntu USN-120-1 (apache2)|
|Summary:||Ubuntu USN-120-1 (apache2)|
The remote host is missing an update to apache2
announced via advisory USN-120-1.
A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:
Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog)
Ubuntu 5.04 (Hoary Hedgehog)
The following packages are affected: apache2-utils
Luca Ercoli discovered that the htdigest program did not perform any
bounds checking when it copied the user and realm arguments into
local buffers. If this program is used in remotely callable CGI
scripts, this could be exploited by a remote attacker to execute
arbitrary code with the privileges of the CGI script.
The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 2.0.50-12ubuntu4.2 (for Ubuntu 4.10) and 2.0.53-5ubuntu5.1
(for Ubuntu 5.04). In general, a standard system upgrade is
sufficient to effect the necessary changes.
