[SECURITY] Fedora Core 6 Update: httpd-2.2.4-2.1.fc6

Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 6
Name        : httpd
Version     : 2.2.4
Release     : 2.1.fc6
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)
