Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2005:608

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2005:608.

The Apache HTTP Server is a popular and freely-available Web server.

A flaw was discovered in mod_ssl's handling of the SSLVerifyClient
directive. This flaw occurs if a virtual host is configured
using SSLVerifyClient optional and a directive SSLVerifyClient
required is set for a specific location. For servers configured in this
fashion, an attacker may be able to access resources that should otherwise
be protected, by not supplying a client certificate when connecting. The
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project assigned the name
CVE-2005-2700 to this issue.

A flaw was discovered in Apache httpd where the byterange filter would
buffer certain responses into memory. If a server has a dynamic
resource such as a CGI script or PHP script that generates a large amount
of data, an attacker could send carefully crafted requests in order to
consume resources, potentially leading to a Denial of Service. (CVE-2005-2728)

Users of Apache httpd should update to these errata packages that contain
backported patches to correct these issues.

Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
