Description

Updated Apache httpd packages that correct a security issue are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1. This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

The Apache HTTP Server is a popular and freely-available Web server. A flaw in mod_imap when using the Referer directive with image maps was discovered. With certain site configurations, a remote attacker could perform a cross-site scripting attack if a victim can be forced to visit a malicious URL using certain web browsers. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project assigned the name CVE-2005-3352 to this issue. Users of apache should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch to correct this issue.
