Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2008:0967

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2008:0967.

The Apache HTTP Server is a popular Web server.

A flaw was found in the mod_proxy Apache module. An attacker in control of
a Web server to which requests were being proxied could have caused a
limited denial of service due to CPU consumption and stack exhaustion.

A flaw was found in the mod_proxy_ftp Apache module. If Apache was
configured to support FTP-over-HTTP proxying, a remote attacker could have
performed a cross-site scripting attack. (CVE-2008-2939)

In addition, these updated packages fix a bug found in the handling of the
ProxyRemoteMatch directive in the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 httpd
packages. This bug is not present in the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 or Red
Hat Enterprise Linux 5 packages.

Users of httpd should upgrade to these updated packages, which 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
