Description

A vulnerability was discovered and corrected in apache-conf :

The Apache HTTP Server enables the HTTP TRACE method per default which allows remote attackers to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks via unspecified web client software (CVE-2009-2823).

This update provides a solution to this vulnerability.

Update :

Packages for 2008.0 are provided for Corporate Desktop 2008.0 customers.
