Multiple vulnerabilities in Apache might lead to a Denial of Service.
|Package||www-servers/apache on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 2.2.9|
|Unaffected versions||>= 2.2.9|
The Apache HTTP server is one of the most popular web servers on the Internet.
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Apache:
A remote attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities by connecting to an Apache httpd, by causing an Apache proxy server to connect to a malicious server, or by enticing a balancer administrator to connect to a specially-crafted URL, resulting in a Denial of Service of the Apache daemon.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Apache users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-servers/apache-2.2.9"
