USN-5737-1: APR-util vulnerability
23 November 2022
APR-util could be made to crash or leak sensitive information if it opened a specially crafted SDBM file.
- apr-util - Apache Portable Runtime Utility Library
It was discovered that APR-util did not properly handle memory when using
SDBM database files. A local attacker with write access to the database
can make a program or process using these functions crash, and cause a
denial of service.
The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:
After a standard system update you need to restart any applications using
APR-util, such as Subversion and Apache, to make all the necessary changes.
