The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.
Updated Apache httpd packages that correct a security issue 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 popular Web server.
The Apache HTTP Server did not verify that a process was an Apache
child process before sending it signals. A local attacker with the
ability to run scripts on the Apache HTTP Server could manipulate the
scoreboard and cause arbitrary processes to be terminated which could
lead to a denial of service. (CVE-2007-3304).
Users of httpd should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
backported patches to correct this issue. Users should restart Apache
after installing this update.
