Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 2
Name        : apr-util
Version     : 0.9.4                      
Release     : 14.2                  
Summary     : Apache Portable Runtime Utility library
Description :
The mission of the Apache Portable Runtime (APR) is to provide a
free library of C data structures and routines.  This library
contains additional utility interfaces for APR; including support
for XML, LDAP, database interfaces, URI parsing and more.

Update Information:

Testing using the Codenomicon HTTP Test Tool performed by the Apache
Software Foundation security group and Red Hat uncovered an input
validation issue in the IPv6 URI parsing routines in the apr-util
library.  If a remote attacker sent a request including a carefully
crafted URI, an httpd child process could be made to crash.  The
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
assigned the name CAN-2004-0786 to this issue.

This update includes a backported fix for this issue.

* Tue Sep 14 2004 Joe Orton <jorton at redhat.com> 0.9.4-14.2

- add security fix for CAN-2004-0786
