MGASA-2021-0577 - Updated apache packages fix security vulnerabilities

Publication date: 21 Dec 2021
URL: https://advisories.mageia.org/MGASA-2021-0577.html
Type: security
Affected Mageia releases: 8
CVE: CVE-2021-44224,
     CVE-2021-44790

Updated apache packages fix security vulnerabilities:
A crafted URI sent to httpd configured as a forward proxy (ProxyRequests
on) can cause a crash (NULL pointer dereference) or, for configurations
mixing forward and reverse proxy declarations, can allow for requests to
be directed to a declared Unix Domain Socket endpoint (Server Side Request
Forgery) (CVE-2021-44224).

A carefully crafted request body can cause a buffer overflow in the mod_lua
multipart parser (r:parsebody() called from Lua scripts). The Apache httpd
team is not aware of an exploit for the vulnerabilty though it might be
possible to craft one (CVE-2021-44790).
