Mandriva: MDVSA-2009:195-1: apr


A vulnerability has been identified and corrected in apr and apr-util:

Multiple integer overflows in the Apache Portable Runtime (APR)
library and the Apache Portable Utility library (aka APR-util)
0.9.x and 1.3.x allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via vectors that
trigger crafted calls to the (1) allocator_alloc or (2) apr_palloc
function in memory/unix/apr_pools.c in APR; or crafted calls to
the (3) apr_rmm_malloc, (4) apr_rmm_calloc, or (5) apr_rmm_realloc
function in misc/apr_rmm.c in APR-util; leading to buffer overflows.
NOTE: some of these details are obtained from third party information

This update provides fixes for these vulnerabilities.


apr-util packages were missing for Mandriva Enterprise Server 5 i586,
this has been adressed with this update.
