Synopsis:          Important: mod_jk security update

Product:           Red Hat Application Server
Advisory URL:      https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2009-1087.html

=====================================================================

1. Summary:

Updated mod_jk packages that fix one security issue are now available for
Red Hat Application Server v2.

This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Application Server v2 4AS - i386, ia64, ppc, x86_64
Red Hat Application Server v2 4ES - i386, ia64, x86_64
Red Hat Application Server v2 4WS - i386, ia64, x86_64

3. Description:

mod_jk is an Apache Tomcat connector that allows Apache Tomcat and the
Apache HTTP Server to communicate with each other.

An information disclosure flaw was found in mod_jk. In certain situations,
if a faulty client set the "Content-Length" header without providing data,
or if a user sent repeated requests very quickly, one user may view a
response intended for another user. (CVE-2008-5519)

All mod_jk users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages. They
provide mod_jk 1.2.28, which is not vulnerable to this issue.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
errata relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via Red Hat Network.  Details on how to use 
the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
http://kbase.redhat.com/faq/docs/DOC-11259

5. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):
