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

A flaw in mod_imap when using the Referer directive with image maps was

perform a cross-site scripting attack if a victim can be forced to visit a
malicious URL using certain web browsers. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project assigned the name CVE-2005-3352 to this issue.

Users of apache should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
a backported patch to correct this issue.

relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network,
