Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2007:0746

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2007:0746.

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

A flaw was found in the Apache HTTP Server mod_proxy module. On sites where
a reverse proxy is configured, a remote attacker could send a carefully
crafted request that would cause the Apache child process handling that
request to crash. On sites where a forward proxy is configured, an attacker
could cause a similar crash if a user could be persuaded to visit a
malicious site using the proxy. This could lead to a denial of service if
using a threaded Multi-Processing Module. (CVE-2007-3847)

As well, these updated packages fix the following bugs:

* Set-Cookie headers with a status code of 3xx are not forwarded to
clients when the ProxyErrorOverride directive is enabled. These
responses are overridden at the proxy. Only the responses with status
codes of 4xx and 5xx are overridden in these updated packages.

* the default /etc/logrotate.d/httpd script incorrectly invoked the kill
command, instead of using the /sbin/service httpd restart command. If you
configured the httpd PID to be in a location other than
/var/run/, the httpd logs failed to be rotated. This has been
resolved in these updated packages.

* the ProxyTimeout directive was not inherited across virtual host

* the logresolve utility was unable to read lines longer the 1024 bytes.

This update adds the following enhancements:

* a new configuration option has been added, ServerTokens Full-Release,
which adds the package release to the server version string, which is
returned in the Server response header.

* a new module has been added, mod_version, which allows configuration
files to be written containing sections, which are evaluated only if the
version of httpd used matches a specified condition.

Users of httpd are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
resolve these issues and add these enhancements.

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
