Synopsis

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

A vulnerability has been discovered and corrected in apache :

The mod_proxy_ajp module in the Apache HTTP Server before 2.2.21, when used with mod_proxy_balancer in certain configurations, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (temporary error state in the backend server) via a malformed HTTP request (CVE-2011-3348).

The fix for CVE-2011-3192 provided by the MDVSA-2011:130 advisory introduced regressions in the way httpd handled certain Range HTTP header values.

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
