An updated mod_jk package that fixes a security issue is now available for Red Hat Application Stack v2. This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.
mod_jk is an Apache Tomcat connector that allows Apache Tomcat and the Apache HTTP Server to communicate with each other. An information disclosure flaw was found in mod_jk. In certain situations, if a faulty client set the "Content-Length" header without providing data, or if a user sent repeated requests very quickly, one user may view a response intended for another user. (CVE-2008-5519) As well, the sample configuration files provided in the documentation have been updated to reflect recommended practice. All mod_jk users are advised to upgrade to this updated package. It provides mod_jk 1.2.28, which is not vulnerable to this issue.
