Test ID:
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2004:562

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2004:562.

The Apache HTTP server is a powerful, full-featured, efficient, and
freely-available Web server.

An issue has been discovered in the mod_ssl module when configured to use
the SSLCipherSuite directive in directory or location context. If a
particular location context has been configured to require a specific set
of cipher suites, then a client will be able to access that location using
any cipher suite allowed by the virtual host configuration. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project ( has assigned the name
CVE-2004-0885 to this issue.

An issue has been discovered in the handling of white space in request
header lines using MIME folding. A malicious client could send a carefully
crafted request, forcing the server to consume large amounts of memory,
leading to a denial of service. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project ( has assigned the name CVE-2004-0942 to this issue.

Several minor bugs were also discovered, including:

- - In the mod_cgi module, problems that arise when CGI scripts are
invoked from SSI pages by mod_include using the #include virtual
syntax have been fixed.

- - In the mod_dav_fs module, problems with the handling of indirect locks
on the S/390x platform have been fixed.

Users of the Apache HTTP server who are affected by these issues should
upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches.

Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
