[SECURITY] Fedora 7 Update: httpd-2.2.4-4.1.fc7

Fedora Update Notification
2007-06-26 20:52:39.408741

Name        : httpd
Product     : Fedora 7
Version     : 2.2.4
Release     : 4.1.fc7
Summary     : Apache HTTP Server
Description :
The Apache HTTP Server is a powerful, efficient, and extensible
web server.

Update Information:

The Apache HTTP Server did not verify that a process was an Apache child process
before sending it signals. A local attacker with the ability to run scripts on the
Apache HTTP Server could manipulate the scoreboard and cause arbitrary processes
to be terminated which could lead to a denial of service (CVE-2007-3304). This
issue is not exploitable on Fedora if using the default SELinux targeted policy.

A flaw was found in the Apache HTTP Server mod_status module. On sites where the
server-status page is publicly accessible and ExtendedStatus is enabled this could
lead to a cross-site scripting attack. On Fedora the server-status page is not enabled
by default and it is best practice to not make this publicly available. (CVE-2006-5752)

A bug was found in the Apache HTTP Server mod_cache module. On sites where caching is
enabled, a remote attacker could send a carefully crafted request that would cause the
Apache child process handling that request to crash. This could lead to a denial of
service if using a threaded Multi-Processing Module. (CVE-2007-1863)

A bug was found in the mod_mem_cache module.  On sites where caching is enabled using
this module, an information leak could occur which revealed portions of sensitive
memory to remote users.  (CVE-2007-1862)
