-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 _______________________________________________________________________ Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2015:180 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/ _______________________________________________________________________ Package : apache-mod_wsgi Date : March 30, 2015 Affected: Business Server 2.0 _______________________________________________________________________ Problem Description: Updated apache-mod_wsgi package fixes security vulnerabilities: apache-mod_wsgi before 4.2.4 contained an off-by-one error in applying a limit to the number of supplementary groups allowed for a daemon process group. The result could be that if more groups than the operating system allowed were specified to the option supplementary-groups, then memory corruption or a process crash could occur. It was discovered that mod_wsgi incorrectly handled errors when setting up the working directory and group access rights. A malicious application could possibly use this issue to cause a local privilege escalation when using daemon mode (CVE-2014-8583). _______________________________________________________________________ References: http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2014-8583 http://advisories.mageia.org/MGASA-2014-0323.html http://advisories.mageia.org/MGASA-2014-0513.html _______________________________________________________________________ Updated Packages: Mandriva Business Server 2/X86_64: fe28e7f7ec4bcd1b1fc01bb8239161f6 mbs2/x86_64/apache-mod_wsgi-3.5-1.mbs2.x86_64.rpm 9ffc188c8b7268e5e6bf4a06f00b7ed4 mbs2/SRPMS/apache-mod_wsgi-3.5-1.mbs2.src.rpm _______________________________________________________________________ To upgrade automatically use MandrivaUpdate or urpmi.
