Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

It was discovered that Apache's mod_cache and mod_dav modules
incorrectly handled requests that lacked a path. A remote attacker
could exploit this with a crafted request and cause a denial of
service. This issue affected Ubuntu 6.06 LTS, 8.04 LTS, 9.10 and 10.04
LTS. (CVE-2010-1452)

It was discovered that Apache did not properly handle memory when
destroying APR buckets. A remote attacker could exploit this with
crafted requests and cause a denial of service via memory exhaustion.
This issue affected Ubuntu 6.06 LTS and 10.10. (CVE-2010-1623).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.
