Description

The Apache HTTP Server is a popular web server.It was discovered that the Apache HTTP Server did not properly validate therequest URI for proxied requests. In certain configurations, if a reverseproxy used the ProxyPassMatch directive, or if it used the RewriteRuledirective with the proxy flag, a remote attacker could make the proxyconnect to an arbitrary server, possibly disclosing sensitive informationfrom internal web servers not directly accessible to the attacker.(CVE-2011-3368)Red Hat would like to thank Context Information Security for reporting thisissue.This update also fixes the following bug: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.
