Test ID:
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2009:1075
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2009:1075.

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

A flaw was found in the handling of compression structures between mod_ssl
and OpenSSL. If too many connections were opened in a short period of time,
all system memory and swap space would be consumed by httpd, negatively
impacting other processes, or causing a system crash. (CVE-2008-1678)

Note: The CVE-2008-1678 issue did not affect Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5
prior to 5.3. The problem was introduced via the RHBA-2009:0181 errata in
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3, which upgraded OpenSSL to the newer 0.9.8e

A flaw was found in the handling of the Options and AllowOverride
directives. In configurations using the AllowOverride directive with
certain Options= arguments, local users were not restricted from
executing commands from a Server-Side-Include script as intended.

All httpd users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
backported patches to resolve these issues. Users must restart httpd for
this update to take effect.

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
