Synopsis :

The remote SuSE 10 host is missing a security-related patch.

Description :

Several bugs were fixed in the Apache2 webserver :

These include the following security issues :

- mod_status: Fix a possible XSS attack against a site
with a public server-status page and ExtendedStatus
enabled, for browsers which perform charset 'detection'.
(CVE-2006-5752)

- mod_cache: Prevent a segmentation fault if attributes
are listed in a Cache-Control header without any value.
(CVE-2007-1863)

- prefork, worker, event MPMs: Ensure that the parent
process cannot be forced to kill processes outside its
process group. (CVE-2007-3304)

parsing date-related headers. PR 41144. (CVE-2007-3847)

- mod_autoindex: Add in ContentType and Charset options to
IndexOptions directive. This allows the admin to
explicitly set the content-type and charset of the
generated page. (CVE-2007-4465)

and the following non-security issues :

- get_module_list: replace loadmodule.conf atomically

- Use File::Temp to create good tmpdir in logresolve.pl2
(httpd-2.x.x-logresolve.patchs)
