ID CVE-2005-3357
Summary mod_ssl in Apache 2.0 up to 2.0.55, when configured with an SSL vhost with access control and a custom error 400 error page, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a non-SSL request to an SSL port, which triggers a NULL pointer dereference.

    description This update includes fixes for three security issues in the Apache HTTP Server. A memory leak in the worker MPM could allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via aborted connections, which prevents the memory for the transaction pool from being reused for other connections. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project assigned the name CVE-2005-2970 to this issue. This vulnerability only affects users who are using the non-default worker MPM. A flaw in mod_imap when using the Referer directive with image maps was discovered. With certain site configurations, a remote attacker could perform a cross-site scripting attack if a victim can be forced to visit a malicious URL using certain web browsers. (CVE-2005-3352) A NULL pointer dereference flaw in mod_ssl was discovered affecting server configurations where an SSL virtual host is configured with access control and a custom 400 error document. A remote attacker could send a carefully crafted request to trigger this issue which would lead to a crash. This crash would only be a denial of service if using the non-default worker MPM. (CVE-2005-3357) Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

    description The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200602-03 (Apache: Multiple vulnerabilities) Apache's mod_imap fails to properly sanitize the 'Referer' directive of imagemaps in some cases, leaving the HTTP Referer header unescaped. A flaw in mod_ssl can lead to a NULL pointer dereference if the site uses a custom 'Error 400' document. These vulnerabilities were reported by Marc Cox and Hartmut Keil, respectively. Impact : A remote attacker could exploit mod_imap to inject arbitrary HTML or JavaScript into a user's browser to gather sensitive information. Attackers could also cause a Denial of Service on hosts using the SSL module (Apache 2.0.x only). Workaround : There is no known workaround at this time.
