Test ID:
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2010:0659
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2010:0659.

The Apache HTTP Server is a popular web server.

A flaw was discovered in the way the mod_proxy module of the Apache HTTP
Server handled the timeouts of requests forwarded by a reverse proxy to the
back-end server. If the proxy was configured to reuse existing back-end
connections, it could return a response intended for another user under
certain timeout conditions, possibly leading to information disclosure.

A flaw was found in the way the mod_dav module of the Apache HTTP Server
handled certain requests. If a remote attacker were to send a carefully
crafted request to the server, it could cause the httpd child process to
crash. (CVE-2010-1452)

All httpd users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
backported patches to correct these issues. 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
