Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.69644
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2011:0507
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2011:0507.

The Apache Portable Runtime (APR) is a portability library used by the
Apache HTTP Server and other projects. It provides a free library of C data
structures and routines.

It was discovered that the apr_fnmatch() function used an unconstrained
recursion when processing patterns with the '*' wildcard. An attacker could
use this flaw to cause an application using this function, which also
accepted untrusted input as a pattern for matching (such as an httpd server
using the mod_autoindex module), to exhaust all stack memory or use an
excessive amount of CPU time when performing matching. (CVE-2011-0419)

Red Hat would like to thank Maksymilian Arciemowicz for reporting this
issue.

All apr users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a
backported patch to correct this issue. Applications using the apr library,
such as httpd, must be restarted for this update to take effect.

Solution:
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
