Fedora Core 6 : httpd-2.2.6-1.fc6 (2007-707)

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update includes the latest release of httpd, fixing two security
issues.

A flaw was found in the mod_proxy module. On sites where a reverse
proxy is configured, a remote attacker could send a carefully crafted
request that would cause the Apache child process handling that
request to crash. On sites where a forward proxy is configured, an
attacker could cause a similar crash if a user could be persuaded to
visit a malicious site using the proxy. This could lead to a denial of
service if using a threaded Multi-Processing Module. (CVE-2007-3847)

A flaw was found in the mod_autoindex module. On sites where directory
listings are used, and the AddDefaultCharset directive has been
removed from the configuration, a cross-site-scripting attack may be
possible against browsers which do not correctly derive the response
character set following the rules in RFC 2616. (CVE-2007-4465)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
