Security Update 2009-002 / Mac OS X v10.5.7

  • Apache

    CVE-ID: CVE-2008-2939

    Available for: Mac OS X v10.4.11, Mac OS X Server v10.4.11

    Impact: Visiting a malicious website via a proxy may result in cross-site scripting

    Description: An input validation issue exists in Apache's handling of FTP proxy requests containing wildcard characters. Visiting a malicious website via an Apache proxy may result in a cross-site scripting attack. This update addresses the issue by applying the Apache patch for version 2.0.63. Further information is available via the Apache web site at http://httpd.apache.org/ Apache 2.0.x is only shipped with Mac OS X Server v10.4.x systems. Mac OS X v10.5.x and Mac OS X Server v10.5.x ship with Apache 2.2.x.

  • Apache

    CVE-ID: CVE-2008-2939

    Available for: Mac OS X v10.5 through v10.5.6, Mac OS X Server v10.5 through v10.5.6

    Impact: Visiting a malicious website via a proxy may result in cross-site scripting

    Description: An input validation issue exists in Apache 2.2.9's handling of FTP proxy requests containing wildcard characters. Visiting a malicious website via an Apache proxy may result in a cross-site scripting attack. This update addresses the issue by updating Apache to version 2.2.11. Further information is available via the Apache web site at http://httpd.apache.org/

  • Apache

    CVE-ID: CVE-2008-0456

    Available for: Mac OS X v10.5 through v10.5.6, Mac OS X Server v10.5 through v10.5.6

    Impact: Web sites that allow users to control the name of a served file may be vulnerable to HTTP response injection

    Description: A request forgery issue exists in Apache. Apache does not escape filenames when negotiating the correct content type to send to a remote browser. A user who can publish files with specially crafted names to a web site can substitute their own response for any web page hosted on the system. This update addresses the issue by escaping filenames in content negotiation responses.

  • ATS

  • iChat

    CVE-ID: CVE-2009-0152

    Available for: Mac OS X v10.5 through v10.5.6, Mac OS X Server v10.5 through v10.5.6

    Impact: iChat AIM communications configured for SSL may downgrade to plaintext

    Description: iChat supports Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) for AOL Instant Messenger and Jabber accounts. iChat automatically disables SSL for AOL Instant Messenger accounts when it is unable to connect, and sends subsequent communications in plain text until SSL is manually re-enabled. A remote attacker with the ability to observe network traffic from an affected system may obtain the contents of AOL Instant Messenger conversations. This update addresses the issue by changing the behavior of iChat to always attempt to use SSL, and to use less secure channels only if the "Require SSL" preference is not enabled. This issue does not affect systems prior to Mac OS X v10.5, as they do not support SSL for iChat accounts. Credit to Chris Adams for reporting this issue.
