Test ID:
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2010:0168
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2010:0168.

The Apache HTTP Server is a popular web server.

It was discovered that mod_proxy_ajp incorrectly returned an Internal
Server Error response when processing certain malformed requests, which
caused the back-end server to be marked as failed in configurations where
mod_proxy is used in load balancer mode. A remote attacker could cause
mod_proxy to not send requests to back-end AJP (Apache JServ Protocol)
servers for the retry timeout period (60 seconds by default) by sending
specially-crafted requests. (CVE-2010-0408)

A use-after-free flaw was discovered in the way the Apache HTTP Server
handled request headers in subrequests. In configurations where subrequests
are used, a multithreaded MPM (Multi-Processing Module) could possibly leak
information from other requests in request replies. (CVE-2010-0434)

This update also adds the following enhancement:

* with the updated openssl packages from RHSA-2010:0162 installed, mod_ssl
will refuse to renegotiate a TLS/SSL connection with an unpatched client
that does not support RFC 5746. This update adds the
SSLInsecureRenegotiation configuration directive. If this directive is
enabled, mod_ssl will renegotiate insecurely with unpatched clients.

Refer to the following Red Hat Knowledgebase article for more details about
the changed mod_ssl behavior:

All httpd users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
backported patches to correct these issues and add this enhancement. After
installing the updated packages, the httpd daemon must be restarted for the
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
