The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security
Watchfire reported a flaw that occured when using the Apache server as
a HTTP proxy. A remote attacker could send an HTTP request with both a
'Transfer-Encoding: chunked' header and a 'Content-Length' header
which would cause Apache to incorrectly handle and forward the body of
the request in a way that the receiving server processed it as a
separate HTTP request. This could be used to allow the bypass of web
application firewall protection or lead to cross-site scripting (XSS)
The updated packages have been patched to prevent these issues.
Update the affected packages.
