Medium Nessus Plugin ID 83577


The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.


This update fixes the following security issues with apache2 httpd :

- Filename escaping problem (CVE-2012-2687 )

Additionally, some non-security bugs have been fixed as enumerated in the changelog of the RPM.
