The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.
Updated Apache httpd packages to correct two security issues are now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and 4.
This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the
Red Hat Security Response Team.
The Apache HTTP Server is a powerful, full-featured, efficient, and
freely-available Web server.
Watchfire reported a flaw that occured when using the Apache server as
an HTTP proxy. A remote attacker could send an HTTP request with both
a 'Transfer-Encoding: chunked' header and a 'Content-Length' header.
This caused Apache to incorrectly handle and forward the body of the
request in a way that the receiving server processes it as a separate
HTTP request. This could allow the bypass of Web application firewall
protection or lead to cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) assigned the
name CVE-2005-2088 to this issue.
Marc Stern reported an off-by-one overflow in the mod_ssl CRL
verification callback. In order to exploit this issue the Apache
server would need to be configured to use a malicious certificate
revocation list (CRL). The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project (cve.mitre.org) assigned the name CVE-2005-1268 to this issue.
Users of Apache httpd should update to these errata packages that
contain backported patches to correct these issues.
