Fedora 13 : httpd-2.2.15-1.fc13 (2010-5942)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 47408


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


The Apache HTTP Server Project is proud to announce the release of version 2.2.15 of the Apache HTTP Server ('httpd'). This version is principally a security and bugfix release. Notably, this release was updated to reflect the OpenSSL Project's release 0.9.8m of the openssl library, and addresses CVE-2009-3555 (cve.mitre.org), the TLS renegotiation prefix injection attack. This release further addresses the issues CVE-2010-0408 and CVE-2010-0434 within mod_proxy_ajp and mod_headers respectively. See the upstream changes file for further information: http://www.apache.org/dist/httpd/CHANGES_2.2.15

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.
