Description Marcus Meissner 2014-03-19 09:42:17 UTC
CVE-2013-6438

The dav_xml_get_cdata function in main/util.c in the mod_dav module in the Apache HTTP Server before 2.4.8 does not properly remove whitespace characters from CDATA sections, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (daemon crash) via a crafted DAV WRITE request.

*** Bug 874044 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Comment 5 Roman Drahtmueller 2014-07-02 11:10:00 UTC
This is VUL-1; do we see an immediate necessity to run for an update
with this bug alone?
Comment 7 Roman Drahtmueller 2014-07-02 15:43:49 UTC
It was a yes. :)
hi-jacking already running update, revoked request ID 39577, re-submitted ID 40344 against SLE11-SP1.

Re-assigning to security-team@ for further handling.

Thank you!
