Subject: Security ERRATA Low: httpd on SL6.x i386/x86_64
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.scientific.errata
Date: Thursday 28th February 2013 22:16:58 UTC (over 3 years ago)
Synopsis:          Low: httpd security, bug fix, and enhancement update
Issue Date:        2013-02-21
CVE Numbers:       CVE-2012-2687
                    CVE-2008-0455
                    CVE-2012-4557
--

An input sanitization flaw was found in the mod_negotiation Apache HTTP 
Server
module. A remote attacker able to upload or create files with arbitrary 
names
in a directory that has the MultiViews options enabled, could use this 
flaw to
conduct cross-site scripting attacks against users visiting the site.
(CVE-2008-0455, CVE-2012-2687)

It was discovered that mod_proxy_ajp, when used in configurations with
mod_proxy in load balancer mode, would mark a back-end server as failed
when
request processing timed out, even when a previous AJP (Apache JServ 
Protocol)
CPing request was responded to by the back-end. A remote attacker able 
to make
a back-end use an excessive amount of time to process a request could cause
mod_proxy to not send requests to back-end AJP servers for the retry
timeout
period or until all back-end servers were marked as failed. (CVE-2012-4557)

After installing the updated packages, the httpd daemon will be restarted
automatically.
