 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2009:184
 http://www.mandriva.com/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : apache-mod_security
 Date    : July 31, 2009
 Affected: Enterprise Server 5.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in mod_security:
 
 The multipart processor in ModSecurity before 2.5.9 allows remote
 attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a multipart form
 datapost request with a missing part header name, which triggers a
 NULL pointer dereference (CVE-2009-1902).
 
 The PDF XSS protection feature in ModSecurity before 2.5.8 allows
 remote attackers to cause a denial of service (Apache httpd crash)
 via a request for a PDF file that does not use the GET method
 (CVE-2009-1903).
 
 This update provides mod_security 2.5.9, which is not vulnerable to
 these issues.
