CentOS Update for httpd CESA-2016:1421 centos5

Published: 2016-07-19 03:26:47
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

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

Detection Type:
Linux Distribution Package

Summary:
Check the version of httpd

Detection Method:
Checks if a vulnerable version is present on the target host.

Technical Details:
The httpd Linux Distribution Packages provide the Apache HTTP Server, a powerful, efficient, and extensible web server. Security Fix(es): * It was discovered that httpd used the value of the Proxy header from HTTP requests to initialize the HTTP_PROXY environment variable for CGI scripts, which in turn was incorrectly used by certain HTTP client implementations to configure the proxy for outgoing HTTP requests. A remote attacker could possibly use this flaw to redirect HTTP requests performed by a CGI script to an attacker-controlled proxy via a malicious HTTP request. (CVE-2016-5387) Note: After this update, httpd will no longer pass the value of the Proxy request header to scripts via the HTTP_PROXY environment variable. Red Hat would like to thank Scott Geary (VendHQ) for reporting this issue. 4. Solution: For details on how to apply this update, which includes the changes described in this advisory, refer to the linked article. After installing the updated Linux Distribution Packages, the httpd daemon will be restarted automatically. 5. Bugs fixed: 1353755 - CVE-2016-5387 Apache HTTPD: sets environmental variable based on user supplied Proxy request header 6.

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".
