Hash: SHA1

=====================================================================
                   Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis:          Important: httpd security update
Advisory ID:       RHSA-2017:2478-01
Product:           Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL:      https://access.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2017:2478
Issue date:        2017-08-15
CVE Names:         CVE-2017-3167 CVE-2017-3169 CVE-2017-7679 
                   CVE-2017-9788 
=====================================================================

1. Summary:

An update for httpd is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact
of Important. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score,
which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability
from the CVE link(s) in the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6) - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop Optional (v. 6) - i386, noarch, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux HPC Node (v. 6) - x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux HPC Node Optional (v. 6) - noarch, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6) - i386, noarch, ppc64, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6) - i386, noarch, x86_64

3. Description:

The httpd packages provide the Apache HTTP Server, a powerful, efficient,
and extensible web server.

Security Fix(es):

* It was discovered that the httpd's mod_auth_digest module did not
properly initialize memory before using it when processing certain headers
related to digest authentication. A remote attacker could possibly use this
flaw to disclose potentially sensitive information or cause httpd child
process to crash by sending specially crafted requests to a server.
(CVE-2017-9788)

* It was discovered that the use of httpd's ap_get_basic_auth_pw() API
function outside of the authentication phase could lead to authentication
bypass. A remote attacker could possibly use this flaw to bypass required
authentication if the API was used incorrectly by one of the modules used
by httpd. (CVE-2017-3167)

* A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the httpd's mod_ssl module.
A remote attacker could use this flaw to cause an httpd child process to
crash if another module used by httpd called a certain API function during
the processing of an HTTPS request. (CVE-2017-3169)

* A buffer over-read flaw was found in the httpd's mod_mime module. A user
permitted to modify httpd's MIME configuration could use this flaw to cause
httpd child process to crash. (CVE-2017-7679)

4. Solution:

For details on how to apply this update, which includes the changes
described in this advisory, refer to:

https://access.redhat.com/articles/11258

After installing the updated packages, the httpd daemon will be restarted
automatically.
