openSUSE-SU-2016:1824-1: moderate: Security update for apache2
openSUSE Security Update: Security update for apache2
______________________________________________________________________________

Announcement ID: openSUSE-SU-2016:1824-1
Rating: moderate
References: #988488
Cross-References: CVE-2016-5387
Affected Products:
openSUSE Leap 42.1
openSUSE 13.2
______________________________________________________________________________

An update that fixes one vulnerability is now available.

Description:


This update for apache2 fixes the following issues:

* It used to be possible to set an arbitrary $HTTP_PROXY environment
variable for request handlers -- like CGI scripts -- by including a
specially crafted HTTP header in the request (CVE-2016-5387). As a
result, these server components would potentially direct all their
outgoing HTTP traffic through a malicious proxy server. This patch fixes
the issue: the updated Apache server ignores such HTTP headers and never
sets $HTTP_PROXY for sub-processes (unless a value has been explicitly
configured by the administrator in the configuration file). (bsc#988488)

This update was imported from the SUSE:SLE-12-SP1:Update update project.
