[ESA-20021029-027] mod_ssl cross-site scripting vulnerability.

by Nikola Strahija on October 29th, 2002 This update fixes a cross-site scripting vulnerability in mod_ssl where, under certain circumstances, Apache will use the client supplied hostname:port pair.


The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
assigned the name CAN-2002-1157 to this issue.

SOLUTION
- --------
Users of the EnGarde Professional edition can use the Guardian Digital
Secure Network to update their systems automatically.

EnGarde Community users should upgrade to the most recent version
as outlined in this advisory. Updates may be obtained from:

ftp://ftp.engardelinux.org/pub/engarde/stable/updates/
http://ftp.engardelinux.org/pub/engarde/stable/updates/

Before upgrading the package, the machine must either:

a) be booted into a "standard" kernel; or
b) have LIDS disabled.

To disable LIDS, execute the command:

# /sbin/lidsadm -S -- -LIDS_GLOBAL

To install the updated package, execute the command:

# rpm -Uvh files

You must now update the LIDS configuration by executing the command:

# /usr/sbin/config_lids.pl

To re-enable LIDS (if it was disabled), execute the command:

# /sbin/lidsadm -S -- +LIDS_GLOBAL

To verify the signatures of the updated packages, execute the command:

# rpm -Kv files
