SuSE: New Apache packages fix security vulnerabilities

This update fixes a regression in parameter passing (in urldecoding of parameters that contain spaces). In addition, the HTTP Digest Access Authentication implementation does not check qop values, which might allow remote attackers to bypass intended integrity-protection requirements via a qop=auth value. The HTTP Digest Access Authentication implementation does not check realm values, which might allow remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions by leveraging the availability of a protection space with weaker authentication or authorization requirements.

DigestAuthenticator.java in the HTTP Digest Access Authentication implementation uses Catalina as the hard-coded server secret (aka private key), which makes it easier for remote attackers to bypass cryptographic protection mechanisms by leveraging knowledge of this string.

Updated packages are available from download.opensuse.org.

  An update that fixes four vulnerabilities is now available.

Description:


  This update fixes a regression in parameter passing (in
  urldecoding of  parameters that contain spaces).

  In addition, multiple weaknesses in HTTP DIGESTS have been
  fixed  (CVE-2011-1184):

  * CVE-2011-5062: The HTTP Digest Access Authentication
  implementation in Apache Tomcat 5.5.x before 5.5.34, 6.x
  before 6.0.33 and 7.x before 7.0.12 does not check qop
  values, which might allow remote attackers to bypass
  intended integrity-protection requirements via a qop=auth
  value, a different vulnerability than CVE-2011-1184.
  * CVE-2011-5063: The HTTP Digest Access Authentication
  implementation in Apache Tomcat 5.5.x before 5.5.34, 6.x
  before 6.0.33, and 7.x before 7.0.12 does not check realm
  values, which might allow remote attackers to bypass
  intended access restrictions by leveraging the availability
  of a protection space with weaker authentication or
  authorization requirements, a different vulnerability than
  CVE-2011-1184.
  * CVE-2011-5064: DigestAuthenticator.java in the HTTP
  Digest Access Authentication implementation in Apache
  Tomcat 5.5.x before 5.5.34, 6.x before 6.0.33, and 7.x
  before 7.0.12 uses Catalina as the hard-coded server secret
  (aka private key), which makes it easier for remote
  attackers to bypass cryptographic protection mechanisms by
  leveraging knowledge of this string, a different
  vulnerability than CVE-2011-1184.
