Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
CVE Names: CAN-2004-0885 CAN-2004-0942
----------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Summary:

Updated httpd packages that include fixes for two security issues, as well as other bugs, are now available.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 3 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Desktop version 3 - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 3 - i386, ia64, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 3 - i386, ia64, x86_64bold text

3. Problem description:

The Apache HTTP server is a powerful, full-featured, efficient, and freely-available Web server.

An issue has been discovered in the mod_ssl module when configured to use the "SSLCipherSuite" directive in directory or location context. If a particular location context has been configured to require a specific set of cipher suites, then a client will be able to access that location using any cipher suite allowed by the virtual host configuration. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-0885 to this issue.

An issue has been discovered in the handling of white space in request header lines using MIME folding. A malicious client could send a carefully crafted request, forcing the server to consume large amounts of memory, leading to a denial of service. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-0942 to this issue.

Several minor bugs were also discovered, including:

- - In the mod_cgi module, problems that arise when CGI scripts are invoked from SSI pages by mod_include using the "#include virtual" syntax have been fixed.

- - In the mod_dav_fs module, problems with the handling of indirect locks on the S/390x platform have been fixed.

Users of the Apache HTTP server who are affected by these issues should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released errata relevant to your system have been applied. Use Red Hat Network to download and update your packages. To launch the Red Hat Update Agent, use the following command:
