Fedora 11 : httpd-2.2.13-1.fc11 (2009-8812)

high Nessus Plugin ID 40833


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update includes the latest release of the Apache HTTP Server, version 2.2.13, fixing several security issues: * Fix a potential Denial-of-Service attack against mod_deflate or other modules, by forcing the server to consume CPU time in compressing a large file after a client disconnects. (CVE-2009-1891) * Prevent the 'Includes' Option from being enabled in an .htaccess file if the AllowOverride restrictions do not permit it. (CVE-2009-1195) * Fix a potential Denial-of-Service attack against mod_proxy in a reverse proxy configuration, where a remote attacker can force a proxy process to consume CPU time indefinitely. (CVE-2009-1890) * mod_proxy_ajp: Avoid delivering content from a previous request which failed to send a request body. (CVE-2009-1191) Many bug fixes are also included; see the upstream changelog for further details:

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 httpd package.
