CVE-2013-1896

Impact: Moderate
Public: 2013-05-23
Bugzilla: 983549: CVE-2013-1896 httpd: mod_dav DoS (httpd child process crash) via a URI MERGE request with source URI not handled by mod_dav
IAVA: 2013-A-0146

Details

The MITRE CVE dictionary describes this issue as:

mod_dav.c in the Apache HTTP Server before 2.2.25 does not properly determine whether DAV is enabled for a URI, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (segmentation fault) via a MERGE request in which the URI is configured for handling by the mod_dav_svn module, but a certain href attribute in XML data refers to a non-DAV URI.
