Description

The Apache HTTP Server is a popular web server.A flaw was discovered in the way the mod_proxy module of the Apache HTTPServer handled the timeouts of requests forwarded by a reverse proxy to theback-end server. If the proxy was configured to reuse existing back-endconnections, it could return a response intended for another user undercertain timeout conditions, possibly leading to information disclosure.(CVE-2010-2791)A flaw was found in the way the mod_dav module of the Apache HTTP Serverhandled certain requests. If a remote attacker were to send a carefullycrafted request to the server, it could cause the httpd child process tocrash. (CVE-2010-1452)This update also fixes the following bugs:All httpd users should upgrade to these updated packages, which containbackported patches to correct these issues. After installing the updatedpackages, the httpd daemon must be restarted for the update to take effect.
