Description

Updated mod_jk packages that fix a security issue are now available for Red Hat Application Stack v1.1. This update has been rated as having critical security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

mod_jk is a Tomcat connector that can be used to communicate between Tomcat and the Apache HTTP Server 2. mod_jk was first distributed with Red Hat Application Stack version 1.1 released on 19 February 2007. A stack overflow flaw was found in the URI handler of mod_jk. A remote attacker could visit a carefully crafted URL being handled by mod_jk and trigger this flaw, which could lead to the execution of arbitrary code as the 'apache' user. (CVE-2007-0774) Users of mod_jk should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch to correct this issue. Red Hat would like to thank TippingPoint and the Zero Day Initiative for reporting this issue.
