Scientific Linux Security Update : httpd on SL7.x x86_64

This script is Copyright (C) 2015-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

Multiple flaws were found in the way httpd parsed HTTP requests and
responses using chunked transfer encoding. A remote attacker could use
these flaws to create a specially crafted request, which httpd would
decode differently from an HTTP proxy software in front of it,
possibly leading to HTTP request smuggling attacks. (CVE-2015-3183)

It was discovered that in httpd 2.4, the internal API function
ap_some_auth_required() could incorrectly indicate that a request was
authenticated even when no authentication was used. An httpd module
using this API function could consequently allow access that should
have been denied. (CVE-2015-3185)

After installing the updated packages, the httpd service will be
restarted automatically.
