    Debian: 'mod_ssl/apache-ssl' Remote buffer overflow vulnerability

    Posted By LinuxSecurity Advisories
    With session caching enabled, mod_ssl will serialize SSL sessionvariables to store them for later use. These variables were stored ina buffer of a fixed size without proper boundary checks.

    Package        : libapache-mod-ssl, apache-ssl
    Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    Ed Moyle recently found a buffer overflow in Apache-SSL and mod_ssl.
    With session caching enabled, mod_ssl will serialize SSL session
    variables to store them for later use.  These variables were stored in
    a buffer of a fixed size without proper boundary checks.
    To exploit the overflow, the server must be configured to require client
    certificates, and an attacker must obtain a carefully crafted client
    certificate that has been signed by a Certificate Authority which is
    trusted by the server. If these conditions are met, it would be possible
    for an attacker to execute arbitrary code on the server.
    This problem has been fixed in version of Apache-SSL and
    version 2.4.10-1.3.9-1potato1 of libapache-mod-ssl for the stable
    Debian distribution as well as in version of
    Apache-SSL and version 2.8.7-1 of libapache-mod-ssl for the testing
    and unstable distribution of Debian.
    We recommend that you upgrade your Apache-SSL and mod_ssl packages.
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
    If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
    sources.list as given below:
    apt-get update
            will update the internal database
    apt-get upgrade
            will install corrected packages
    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.
