Description

  • complete overhaul of this package, with update to 2.7.5.

  • ruleset update to 2.2.8-0-g0f07cbb.

  • new configuration framework private to mod_security2: /etc/apache2/conf.d/mod_security2.conf loads /usr/share/apache2-mod_security2/rules/modsecurity_crs_1 0_setup.conf, then /etc/apache2/mod_security2.d/*.conf , as set up based on advice in /etc/apache2/conf.d/mod_security2.conf Your configuration starting point is /etc/apache2/conf.d/mod_security2.conf

  • !!! Please note that mod_unique_id is needed for mod_security2 to run!

  • modsecurity-apache_2.7.5-build_fix_pcre.diff changes erroneaous linker parameter, preventing rpath in shared object.

  • fixes contained for the following bugs :

  • CVE-2009-5031, CVE-2012-2751 [bnc#768293] request parameter handling

  • [bnc#768293] multi-part bypass, minor threat

  • CVE-2013-1915 [bnc#813190] XML external entity vulnerability

  • CVE-2012-4528 [bnc#789393] rule bypass

  • CVE-2013-2765 [bnc#822664] NULL pointer dereference crash

  • new from 2.5.9 to 2.7.5, only major changes :

  • GPLv2 replaced by Apache License v2

  • rules are not part of the source tarball any longer, but maintaned upstream externally, and included in this package.

  • documentation was externalized to a wiki. Package contains the FAQ and the reference manual in html form.

  • renamed the term 'Encryption' in directives that actually refer to hashes. See CHANGES file for more details.

  • new directive SecXmlExternalEntity, default off

  • byte conversion issues on s390x when logging fixed.

  • many small issues fixed that were discovered by a Coverity scanner

  • updated reference manual

  • wrong time calculation when logging for some timezones fixed.

  • replaced time-measuring mechanism with finer granularity for measured request/answer phases. (Stopwatch remains for compat.)

  • cookie parser memory leak fix

  • parsing of quoted strings in multipart Content-Disposition headers fixed.

  • SDBM deadlock fix

  • @rsub memory leak fix

  • cookie separator code improvements

  • build failure fixes

  • compile time option --enable-htaccess-config (set)
