Description

The Apache HTTP Server is a popular and freely-available Web server.

These updated httpd packages resolve the following security issues:

A flaw was found in the mod_imagemap module. On sites where mod_imagemap was enabled and an imagemap file was publicly available, a cross-site scripting attack was possible. (CVE-2007-5000)

A flaw was found in the mod_status module. On sites where mod_status was enabled and the status pages were publicly accessible, a cross-site scripting attack was possible. (CVE-2007-6388)

A flaw was found in the mod_proxy_balancer module. On sites where mod_proxy_balancer was enabled, a cross-site scripting attack against an authorized user was possible. (CVE-2007-6421)

A flaw was found in the mod_proxy_balancer module. On sites where mod_proxy_balancer was enabled, an authorized user 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-2007-6422)

A flaw was found in the mod_proxy_ftp module. On sites where mod_proxy_ftp was enabled and a forward proxy was configured, a cross-site scripting attack was possible against browsers which do not correctly derive the response character set following the rules in RFC 2616. (CVE-2008-0005)

Users of httpd should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues. Users should restart httpd after installing this update.
