The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
A flaw was discovered in the way the mod_proxy module of the Apache
HTTP Server handled the timeouts of requests forwarded by a reverse
proxy to the back-end server. If the proxy was configured to reuse
existing back-end connections, it could return a response intended for
another user under certain timeout conditions, possibly leading to
information disclosure. (CVE-2010-2791)
A flaw was found in the way the mod_dav module of the Apache HTTP
Server handled certain requests. If a remote attacker were to send a
carefully crafted request to the server, it could cause the httpd
child process to crash. (CVE-2010-1452)
This update also fixes the following bugs :
- numerous issues in the INFLATE filter provided by
mod_deflate. 'Inflate error -5 on flush' errors may have
been logged. This update upgrades mod_deflate to the
newer upstream version from Apache HTTP Server 2.2.15.
- the response would be corrupted if mod_filter applied
the DEFLATE filter to a resource requiring a subrequest
with an internal redirect. (BZ#625451)
- the OID() function used in the mod_ssl 'SSLRequire'
directive did not correctly evaluate extensions of an
unknown type. (BZ#625452)
After installing the updatedpackages, the httpd daemon must be
restarted for the update to take effect.
