Red Hat Network Proxy Server version 5.0.2 is now available. This update includes fixes for a number of security issues in Red Hat Network Proxy Server components.

This update has been rated as having low security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

The Red Hat Network Proxy Server 5.0.2 release corrects several security vulnerabilities in several shipped components. In a typical operating environment, these components are not exposed to users of Proxy Server in a vulnerable manner. These security updates will reduce risk in unique Proxy Server environments.

Multiple flaws were fixed in the Apache HTTPD server. These flaws could result in a cross-site scripting or denial-of-service attack.
(CVE-2007-6388, CVE-2007-5000, CVE-2007-3304, CVE-2006-5752)

A denial-of-service flaw was fixed in mod_perl. (CVE-2007-1349)

A denial-of-service flaw was fixed in the jabberd server.

Users of Red Hat Network Proxy Server 5.0 are advised to upgrade to 5.0.2, which resolves these issues.
