Scientific Linux Security Update : httpd on SL6.x i386/x86_64
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 85620
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionMultiple flaws were found in the way httpd parsed HTTP requests and responses using chunked transfer encoding. A remote attacker could use these flaws to create a specially crafted request, which httpd would decode differently from an HTTP proxy software in front of it, possibly leading to HTTP request smuggling attacks. (CVE-2015-3183)
After installing the updated packages, the httpd service will be restarted automatically.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
