Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200907-03 (APR Utility Library: Multiple vulnerabilities)

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in the APR Utility
Library:
Matthew Palmer reported a heap-based buffer
underflow while compiling search patterns in the
apr_strmatch_precompile() function in strmatch/apr_strmatch.c
(CVE-2009-0023).
kcope reported that the expat XML parser in
xml/apr_xml.c does not limit the amount of XML entities expanded
recursively (CVE-2009-1955).
C. Michael Pilato reported an
off-by-one error in the apr_brigade_vprintf() function in
buckets/apr_brigade.c (CVE-2009-1956).

Impact :

A remote attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities to cause a Denial
of Service (crash or memory exhaustion) via an Apache HTTP server
running mod_dav or mod_dav_svn, or using several configuration files.
Additionally, a remote attacker could disclose sensitive information or
cause a Denial of Service by sending a specially crafted input. NOTE:
Only big-endian architectures such as PPC and HPPA are affected by the
latter flaw.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
