Fedora 7 : httpd-2.2.6-1.fc7 (2007-2214)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 27758

Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

This update includes the latest stable release of the Apache HTTP Server.

A flaw was found in the Apache HTTP Server mod_proxy module. On sites where a reverse proxy is configured, a remote attacker could send a carefully crafted request that would cause the Apache child process handling that request to crash. On sites where a forward proxy is configured, an attacker could cause a similar crash if a user could be persuaded to visit a malicious site using the proxy. This could lead to a denial of service if using a threaded Multi-Processing Module.
(CVE-2007-3847)

A flaw was found in the mod_autoindex module. On sites where directory listings are used, and the AddDefaultCharset directive has been removed from the configuration, a cross-site-scripting attack may be possible against browsers which do not correctly derive the response character set following the rules in RFC 2616. (CVE-2007-4465)

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.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
