Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2009:1087
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2009:1087.

mod_jk is an Apache Tomcat connector that allows Apache Tomcat and the
Apache HTTP Server to communicate with each other.

An information disclosure flaw was found in mod_jk. In certain situations,
if a faulty client set the Content-Length header without providing data,
or if a user sent repeated requests very quickly, one user may view a
response intended for another user. (CVE-2008-5519)

All mod_jk users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages. They
provide mod_jk 1.2.28, which is not vulnerable to this issue.

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
