The Apache HTTP server is a powerful, full-featured, efficient, and
freely-available Web server.
A memory leak in mod_ssl in the Apache HTTP Server prior to version
2.0.49 allows a remote denial of service attack against an SSL-enabled
server. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2004-0113 to this issue.
This update also includes various bug fixes, including :
- improvements to the mod_expires, mod_dav, mod_ssl and
- a fix for a bug causing core dumps during configuration
parsing on the IA64 platform
- an updated version of mod_include fixing several edge
cases in the SSI parser
Additionally, the mod_logio module is now included.
Users of the Apache HTTP server should upgrade to these updated
packages, which contain backported patches that address these issues.
