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

After installing the updated packages, the httpd daemon will be
