rPath Update Announcements (announce-noreply rpath com)
rPath Security Advisory: 2009-0142-1
rPath Appliance Platform Linux Service 2
rPath Linux 2
Exposure Level Classification:
Local System User Deterministic Privilege Escalation
rPath Issue Tracking System:
Previous versions of httpd do not properly handle Options=IncludesNOEXEC
in the AllowOverride directive, which allows local users to gain
privileges via a specially crafted .htaccess file combined with an exec
element in a .shtml file.
Additionally, when a reverse proxy is configured, a vulnerability in
mod_proxy could allow a remote attacker to cause a denial of service
(CPU consumption) via crafted requests.
Both of these issues have been addressed in this release.
