    Package        : apache2
    CVE ID         : CVE-2014-0118 CVE-2014-0226 CVE-2014-0231
    
    Several security issues were found in the Apache HTTP server.
    
    CVE-2014-0118
    
        The DEFLATE input filter (inflates request bodies) in mod_deflate
        allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (resource
        consumption) via crafted request data that decompresses to a much
        larger size.
    
    CVE-2014-0226
    
        A race condition was found in mod_status. An attacker able to
        access a public server status page on a server could send carefully
        crafted requests which could lead to a heap buffer overflow,
        causing denial of service, disclosure of sensitive information, or
        potentially the execution of arbitrary code.
    
    CVE-2014-0231
    
        A flaw was found in mod_cgid. If a server using mod_cgid hosted
        CGI scripts which did not consume standard input, a remote attacker
        could cause child processes to hang indefinitely, leading to denial
        of service.
    
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.2.22-13+deb7u3.
    
    For the testing distribution (jessie), these problems will be fixed in
    version 2.4.10-1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.4.10-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your apache2 packages.
