The previous email was sent with an incorrect package list. The correct list of packages is included here. Synopsis: Moderate: httpd security update Advisory ID: SLSA-2014:0369-1 Issue Date: 2014-04-03 CVE Numbers: CVE-2013-6438 CVE-2014-0098 -- It was found that the mod_dav module did not correctly strip leading white space from certain elements in a parsed XML. In certain httpd configurations that use the mod_dav module (for example when using the mod_dav_svn module), a remote attacker could send a specially crafted DAV request that would cause the httpd child process to crash or, possibly, allow the attacker to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the "apache" user. (CVE-2013-6438) A buffer over-read flaw was found in the httpd mod_log_config module. In configurations where cookie logging is enabled (on Scientific Linux it is disabled by default), a remote attacker could use this flaw to crash the httpd child process via an HTTP request with a malformed cookie header. (CVE-2014-0098) After installing the updated packages, the httpd daemon will be restarted automatically. -- SL5 x86_64 httpd-2.2.3-85.sl5.x86_64.rpm httpd-devel-2.2.3-85.sl5.i386.rpm httpd-devel-2.2.3-85.sl5.x86_64.rpm httpd-manual-2.2.3-85.sl5.x86_64.rpm mod_ssl-2.2.3-85.sl5.x86_64.rpm httpd-debuginfo-2.2.3-85.sl5.i386.rpm httpd-debuginfo-2.2.3-85.sl5.x86_64.rpm i386 httpd-2.2.3-85.sl5.i386.rpm httpd-devel-2.2.3-85.sl5.i386.rpm httpd-manual-2.2.3-85.sl5.i386.rpm mod_ssl-2.2.3-85.sl5.i386.rpm httpd-debuginfo-2.2.3-85.sl5.i386.rpm - Scientific Linux Development Team
