Description

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 allows a remote denial of service attack against an SSL-enabled server. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-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.
