httpd, mod_ssl security update

Description

**CentOS Errata and Security Advisory** CESA-2017:2972 The httpd packages provide the Apache HTTP Server, a powerful, efficient, and extensible web server. Security Fix(es): * A use-after-free flaw was found in the way httpd handled invalid and previously unregistered HTTP methods specified in the Limit directive used in an .htaccess file. A remote attacker could possibly use this flaw to disclose portions of the server memory, or cause httpd child process to crash. (CVE-2017-9798) * A regression was found in the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.9 version of httpd, causing comments in the "Allow" and "Deny" configuration lines to be parsed incorrectly. A web administrator could unintentionally allow any client to access a restricted HTTP resource. (CVE-2017-12171) Red Hat would like to thank Hanno Böck for reporting CVE-2017-9798 and KAWAHARA Masashi for reporting CVE-2017-12171. **Merged security bulletin from advisories:** https://lists.centos.org/pipermail/centos-announce/2017-October/072076.html **Affected packages:** httpd httpd-devel httpd-manual httpd-tools mod_ssl **Upstream details at:** https://access.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2017:2972
