Description Jan Lieskovsky 2010-07-26 07:32:32 EDT
Apache Software Foundation assigned an identifier CVE-2010-1452 to
the following vulnerability:

A flaw was found in the handling of requests by mod_cache and mod_dav.
A malicious remote attacker could send a carefully crafted request and
cause a httpd child process to crash. This crash would only be a denial
of service if using the worker MPM. This issue is further mitigated as
mod_dav is only affected by requests that are most likely to be
authenticated, and mod_cache is only affected if the uncommon 
CacheIgnoreURLSessionIdentifiers" directive, introduced in version 2.2.14,
is used.

(https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=49246#c0)

When configured with a virtual host, caching and a non-empty
CacheIgnoreURLSessionIdentifiers parameter httpd segfaults on requests with no
path. Configuration:

NameVirtualHost *:80
<VirtualHost *:80>
  ServerName www.example.com
  CacheEnable disk /
  CacheRoot /tmp/cache-root
  CacheDefaultExpire 86400
  CacheIgnoreURLSessionIdentifiers cachebuster
</VirtualHost>

Test:

host:~ tail -0f logs/error_log &
[1] 7637
host:~ (echo "GET http://www.example.com HTTP/1.0"; echo) | nc localhost 80
