DLA-490-1 bozohttpd -- LTS security update
- Date Reported:
- 26 May 2016
- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- In the Debian bugtracking system: Bug 755197.
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2014-5015, CVE-2015-8212.
- More information:
Two security vulnerabilities have been discovered in bozohttpd, a small HTTP server.
Bozotic HTTP server (aka bozohttpd) before 201407081 truncates paths when checking .htpasswd restrictions, which allows remote attackers to bypass the HTTP authentication scheme and access restrictions via a long path.
A flaw in CGI suffix handler support was found, if the -C option has been used to setup a CGI handler, that could result in remote code execution.
For Debian 7
Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version 20111118-1+deb7u1.
We recommend that you upgrade your bozohttpd packages.
