Description


Debian Security Advisory DSA-133-1 security@debian.org http://www.debian.org/security/ Daniel Jacobowitz June 20, 2002


Package : apache-perl Problem type : remote DoS / exploit Debian-specific: no CVE name : CAN-2002-0392 CERT advisory : VU#944335

Mark Litchfield found a denial of service attack in the Apache web-server. While investigating the problem the Apache Software Foundation discovered that the code for handling invalid requests which use chunked encoding also might allow arbitrary code execution.

This has been fixed in version 1.3.9-14.1-1.21.20000309-1 of the Debian apache-perl package and we recommand that you upgrade your apache-perl package immediately.

An update for the soon to be released Debian GNU/Linux 3.0/woody distribution will be available soon.

Debian 2.2 (stable)


Stable was released for alpha, arm, i386, m68k, powerpc and sparc.
