Description

An updated mod_jk package that fixes one security issue is now available for Red Hat Network Satellite Server 5.1 and 5.2. This update has been rated as having low 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) Note: Red Hat Network Satellite Server is the only client that has access to mod_jk on the system, and as such, the exposure and risk of this issue is low. Users of Red Hat Network Satellite Server 5.1 and 5.2 are advised to upgrade to this updated mod_jk package, which contains a backported patch to correct this issue.
