CentOS Update for httpd CESA-2013:0512 centos6

CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:
AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:P

Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'httpd' Linux Distribution Package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Affected Versions:
httpd on CentOS 6

Recommendations:
Please install the updated Linux Distribution Packages.

Technical Details:
The httpd Linux Distribution Packages contain the Apache HTTP Server (httpd), which is the namesake project of The Apache Software Foundation. An input sanitization flaw was found in the mod_negotiation Apache HTTP Server module. A remote attacker able to upload or create files with arbitrary names in a directory that has the MultiViews options enabled, could use this flaw to conduct cross-site scripting attacks against users visiting the site. (CVE-2008-0455, CVE-2012-2687) It was discovered that mod_proxy_ajp, when used in configurations with mod_proxy in load balancer mode, would mark a back-end server as failed when request processing timed out, even when a previous AJP (Apache JServ Protocol) CPing request was responded to by the back-end. A remote attacker able to make a back-end use an excessive amount of time to process a request could cause mod_proxy to not send requests to back-end AJP servers for the retry timeout period or until all back-end servers were marked as failed. (CVE-2012-4557) These updated httpd Linux Distribution Packages include numerous bug fixes and enhancements. Space precludes documenting all of these changes in this advisory. Users are directed to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4 Technical Notes, linked to in the References, for information on the most significant of these changes. All users of httpd are advised to upgrade to these updated Linux Distribution Packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues and add these enhancements. After installing the updated Linux Distribution Packages, the httpd daemon will be restarted automatically.

Detection Type:
Linux Distribution Package

Solution Type:
Vendor Patch

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
