The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in apache :
The stream_reqbody_cl function in mod_proxy_http.c in the mod_proxy
module in the Apache HTTP Server before 2.3.3, when a reverse proxy is
configured, does not properly handle an amount of streamed data that
exceeds the Content-Length value, which allows remote attackers to
cause a denial of service (CPU consumption) via crafted requests
Fix a potential Denial-of-Service attack against mod_deflate or other
modules, by forcing the server to consume CPU time in compressing a
large file after a client disconnects (CVE-2009-1891).
This update provides fixes for these vulnerabilities.
Update the affected packages.
