Package:             apache
Vulnerability:       cross side scripting
OpenPKG Specific:    no

Affected Releases:   Affected Packages:        Corrected Packages:
OpenPKG 1.0          <= apache-1.3.22-1.0.5    >= apache-1.3.22-1.0.6
OpenPKG 1.1          <= apache-1.3.26-1.1.1    >= apache-1.3.26-1.1.2
OpenPKG CURRENT      <= apache-1.3.27-20021009 >= apache-1.3.27-20021023

  Joe Orton <jorton () redhat com> discovered a cross site scripting (XSS)
  bug [3] in mod_ssl [1], the SSL/TLS component for the Apache webserver
  [2]. Like the other recent Apache XSS bugs, this only affects servers
  using a combination of "UseCanonicalName off" (_not_ the default in
  OpenPKG package of Apache) and a wildcard A record of the server in
  the DNS. Although this combination for HTTPS servers is even less
  common than with plain HTTP servers, this nevertheless could allow
  remote attackers to execute client-side script code as other web page
  visitors via the HTTP "Host" header.

  Please check whether you are affected by running "<prefix>/bin/rpm -q
  apache". If you have an affected version of the "apache" package (see
  above), upgrade it according to the solution below. Remember to also
  rebuild and reinstall any dependent OpenPKG packages. [4]

  Select the updated source RPM appropriate for your OpenPKG release
  [5][6][7], fetch it from the OpenPKG FTP service or a mirror location,
  verify its integrity [8], build a corresponding binary RPM from it
  and update your OpenPKG installation by finally installing the binary
  RPM [4]. For the latest OpenPKG 1.1 release, perform the following
  operations to permanently fix the security problem (for other releases
  adjust accordingly).

  $ ftp ftp.openpkg.org
  ftp> bin
  ftp> cd release/1.1/UPD
  ftp> get apache-1.3.26-1.1.2.src.rpm
  ftp> bye
  $ <prefix>/bin/rpm --checksig apache-1.3.26-1.1.2.src.rpm
  $ <prefix>/bin/rpm --rebuild apache-1.3.26-1.1.2.src.rpm
  $ su -
  # <prefix>/bin/rpm -Fvh <prefix>/RPM/PKG/apache-1.3.26-1.1.2.*.rpm
  # <prefix>/etc/rc apache stop start
