Fedora Core 4 : httpd-2.0.54-10.2 (2005-849)

High Nessus Plugin ID 19728


The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.


This update includes two security fixes. An issue was discovered in mod_ssl where 'SSLVerifyClient require' would not be honoured in location context if the virtual host had 'SSLVerifyClient optional' configured (CVE-2005-2700). An issue was discovered in memory consumption of the byterange filter for dynamic resources such as PHP or CGI script (CVE-2005-2728).

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.


Update the affected packages.
