Test ID:
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2010:1002
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2010:1002.

The mod_auth_mysql package includes an extension module for the Apache HTTP
Server, which can be used to implement web user authentication against a
MySQL database.

A flaw was found in the way mod_auth_mysql escaped certain
multibyte-encoded strings. If mod_auth_mysql was configured to use a
multibyte character set that allowed a backslash (\) as part of the
character encodings, a remote attacker could inject arbitrary SQL commands
into a login request. (CVE-2008-2384)

Note: This flaw only affected non-default installations where
AuthMySQLCharacterSet is configured to use one of the affected multibyte
character sets. Installations that did not use the AuthMySQLCharacterSet
configuration option were not vulnerable to this flaw.

All mod_auth_mysql users are advised to upgrade to this updated package,
which contains a backported patch to correct this issue. After installing
the updated package, the httpd daemon must be restarted for the update to
take effect.

Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
