Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update includes the latest release of the Apache HTTP Server,
version 2.2.13, fixing several security issues: * 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) * Prevent the 'Includes'
Option from being enabled in an .htaccess file if the AllowOverride
restrictions do not permit it. (CVE-2009-1195) * Fix a potential
Denial-of-Service attack against mod_proxy in a reverse proxy
configuration, where a remote attacker can force a proxy process to
consume CPU time indefinitely. (CVE-2009-1890) * mod_proxy_ajp: Avoid
delivering content from a previous request which failed to send a
request body. (CVE-2009-1191) Many bug fixes are also included; see
the upstream changelog for further details:
http://www.apache.org/dist/httpd/CHANGES_2.2.13

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.
