The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security
A buffer overflow vulnerability was found by George Guninski in
Apache's mod_proxy module, which can be exploited by a remote user to
potentially execute arbitrary code with the privileges of an httpd
child process (user apache). This can only be exploited, however, if
mod_proxy is actually in use.
It is recommended that you stop Apache prior to updating and then
restart it again once the update is complete ('service httpd stop' and
'service httpd start' respectively).
