SuSE 11.1 Security Update : Apache (SAT Patch Number 5090)

This script is Copyright (C) 2011-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote SuSE 11 host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

This update fixes a remote denial of service bug (memory exhaustion)
in the Apache 2 HTTP server, that could be triggered by remote
attackers using multiple overlapping Request Ranges. (CVE-2011-3192)

It also fixes a issue in mod_dav, where the (1) mod_cache and (2)
mod_dav modules in the Apache HTTP Server 2.2.x allowed remote
attackers to cause a denial of service (process crash) via a request
that lacks a path. (CVE-2010-1452)

Also following bugs were fixed :

- recommend the default MPM (prefork) via Recommends: in
.spec

- apache not sending error 304 if mod_deflate is enabled.

- take LimitRequestFieldsize config option into account
when parsing headers from backend.
