The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
A flaw was found in the mod_proxy Apache module. An attacker in
control of a Web server to which requests were being proxied could
have caused a limited denial of service due to CPU consumption and
stack exhaustion. (CVE-2008-2364)
A flaw was found in the mod_proxy_ftp Apache module. If Apache was
configured to support FTP-over-HTTP proxying, a remote attacker could
have performed a cross-site scripting attack. (CVE-2008-2939)
In addition, these updated packages fix a bug found in the handling of
the 'ProxyRemoteMatch' directive in the Scientific Linux 4 httpd
packages. This bug is not present in the Scientific Linux 3 or
Scientific Linux 5 packages.
