Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2004-084: httpd

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the httpd packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated httpd packages are now available that fix a denial of service
vulnerability in mod_ssl and include various other bug fixes.

The Apache HTTP server is a powerful, full-featured, efficient, and
freely-available Web server.

A memory leak in mod_ssl in the Apache HTTP Server prior to version 2.0.49
permits a remote denial of service attack against an SSL-enabled server. The
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned
the name CVE-2004-0113 to this issue.

This update also includes various bug fixes, including:

- improvements to the mod_expires, mod_dav, mod_ssl and mod_proxy modules

- a fix for a bug causing core dumps during configuration parsing on the
IA64 platform

- an updated version of mod_include fixing several edge cases in the SSI
parser

Additionally, the mod_logio module is now included.

Users of the Apache HTTP server should upgrade to these updated packages,
which contain backported patches that address these issues.
