Fedora 30 : mod_http2 (2019-08e57d15fd)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 125419



The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Code cleanups and Simplifications :

- in stream instance and main connection output handling for a common strategy in h2/h2c versions of the protocol. Stream instances are kept in one place which will make future optimizations in state handling easier.

- Discarding idea of re-using bucket beams and let them live for one request only. Removing design/implementation overhead of never used features.
Making mutexes nested, removing optional lock code no longer necessary.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora update system website.
Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected mod_http2 package.
