It was found that the mod_dav module did not correctly strip leading
white space from certain elements in a parsed XML. In certain httpd
configurations that use the mod_dav module (for example when using the
mod_dav_svn module), a remote attacker could send a specially crafted
DAV request that would cause the httpd child process to crash or,

privileges of the 'apache' user. (CVE-2013-6438)
A buffer over-read flaw was found in the httpd mod_log_config module.
In configurations where cookie logging is enabled (on Scientific Linux
it is disabled by default), a remote attacker could use this flaw to

cookie header. (CVE-2014-0098)
After installing the updated packages, the httpd daemon will be
