Ubuntu Security Notice USN-3370-1
July 27, 2017

apache2 vulnerability

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 17.04
- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 14.04 LTS


Apache HTTP Server could be made to crash or leak sensitive information if
it received specially crafted network traffic.

Software Description:
- apache2: Apache HTTP server


Robert Święcki discovered that the Apache HTTP Server mod_auth_digest
module incorrectly cleared values when processing certain requests. A
remote attacker could use this issue to cause the server to crash,
resulting in a denial or service, or possibly obtain sensitive information.

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 17.04:
  apache2-bin                     2.4.25-3ubuntu2.2

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
  apache2-bin                     2.4.18-2ubuntu3.4

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
  apache2-bin                     2.4.7-1ubuntu4.17

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
