Subject [users@httpd] CVE-2017-7668: ap_find_token buffer overread
Date Mon, 19 Jun 2017 22:09:13 GMT
CVE-2017-7668: ap_find_token buffer overread

Severity: Important

Vendor: The Apache Software Foundation

Versions Affected:
httpd 2.2.32
httpd 2.4.24 (unreleased)
httpd 2.4.25

The HTTP strict parsing changes added in 2.2.32 and 2.4.24 introduced a
bug in token list parsing, which allows ap_find_token() to search past
the end of its input string. By maliciously crafting a sequence of
request headers, an attacker may be able to cause a segmentation fault,
or to force ap_find_token() to return an incorrect value.

2.2.32 users should either apply the patch available at
or upgrade in the future to 2.2.33, which is currently unreleased.

2.4.25 users should upgrade to 2.4.26.

The Apache HTTP Server security team would like to thank Javier Jiménez
( for reporting this issue.
