Synopsis

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description

This update for apache2 fixes the following issues :

Security issues fixed :

- CVE-2016-8743: Fixed liberal whitespace interpretation accepted from requests and sent in response lines and headers. Accepting these different behaviors represented a security concern when httpd participates in any chain of proxies or interacts with back-end application servers, either through mod_proxy or using conventional CGI mechanisms, and may result in request smuggling, response splitting and cache pollution. (bsc#1016715)

- CVE-2016-4975: Fixed possible CRLF injection allowing HTTP response splitting attacks for sites which use mod_userdir. This issue was mitigated by changes which prohibit CR or LF injection into the 'Location' or other outbound header key or value. (bsc#1104826) This update was imported from the SUSE:SLE-12-SP2:Update update project.

Solution

Update the affected apache2 packages.
