Description

Marek Kroemeke discovered that the mod_proxy module incorrectly handled certain requests. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause the server to stop responding, leading to a denial of service. This issue only affected Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. (CVE-2014-0117)

Giancarlo Pellegrino and Davide Balzarotti discovered that the mod_deflate module incorrectly handled body decompression. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause resource consumption, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2014-0118)

Marek Kroemeke and others discovered that the mod_status module incorrectly handled certain requests. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause the server to stop responding, leading to a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2014-0226)

Rainer Jung discovered that the mod_cgid module incorrectly handled certain scripts. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause the server to stop responding, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2014-0231).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
