Mandrake If mod_proxy is in use, this can be exploited by a remote user to execute arbitrary code with user apache's privileges.

Mandrakelinux Security Update Advisory
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package name:           apache
 Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2004:065
 Date:                   June 29th, 2004

 Affected versions:	 10.0, 9.1, 9.2, Corporate Server 2.1
 ______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 A buffer overflow vulnerability was found by George Guninski in
 Apache's mod_proxy module, which can be exploited by a remote user
 to potentially execute arbitrary code with the privileges of an
 httpd child process (user apache).  This can only be exploited,
 however, if mod_proxy is actually in use.
 
 It is recommended that you stop Apache prior to updating and then
 restart it again once the update is complete ("service httpd stop"
 and "service httpd start" respectively).
