Ubuntu Security Notice USN-3370-1
27th July, 2017
A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
- Ubuntu 17.04
- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
Apache HTTP Server could be made to crash or leak sensitive information if it received specially crafted network traffic.
- apache2 - Apache HTTP server
Robert Święcki discovered that the Apache HTTP Server mod_auth_digest
module incorrectly cleared values when processing certain requests. A
remote attacker could use this issue to cause the server to crash,
resulting in a denial or service, or possibly obtain sensitive information.
The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package version:
- Ubuntu 17.04:
- apache2-bin 2.4.25-3ubuntu2.2
- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
- apache2-bin 2.4.18-2ubuntu3.4
- Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
- apache2-bin 2.4.7-1ubuntu4.17
To update your system, please follow these instructions: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Security/Upgrades.
In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
