New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

SynopsisThe remote CentOS host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionUpdated httpd packages that resolve several security issues and fix a bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, 4 and 5.
This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.
The Apache HTTP Server is a popular Web server.
A flaw was found in the mod_proxy Apache module. An attacker in control of a Web server to which requests were being proxied could have caused a limited denial of service due to CPU consumption and stack exhaustion. (CVE-2008-2364)
A flaw was found in the mod_proxy_ftp Apache module. If Apache was configured to support FTP-over-HTTP proxying, a remote attacker could have performed a cross-site scripting attack. (CVE-2008-2939)
In addition, these updated packages fix a bug found in the handling of the 'ProxyRemoteMatch' directive in the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 httpd packages. This bug is not present in the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 or Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 packages.
Users of httpd should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected httpd packages.
