                   Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis:          Moderate: httpd security and bug fix update
Advisory ID:       RHSA-2011:1392-01
Product:           Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL:      https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2011-1392.html
Issue date:        2011-10-20
CVE Names:         CVE-2011-3368 
=====================================================================

1. Summary:

Updated httpd packages that fix one security issue and one bug are now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate
security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score,
which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in
the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

RHEL Desktop Workstation (v. 5 client) - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server) - i386, ia64, ppc, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 4 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client) - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop version 4 - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64

3. Description:

The Apache HTTP Server is a popular web server.

It was discovered that the Apache HTTP Server did not properly validate the
request URI for proxied requests. In certain configurations, if a reverse
proxy used the ProxyPassMatch directive, or if it used the RewriteRule
directive with the proxy flag, a remote attacker could make the proxy
connect to an arbitrary server, possibly disclosing sensitive information
from internal web servers not directly accessible to the attacker.
(CVE-2011-3368)

Red Hat would like to thank Context Information Security for reporting this
issue.

This update also fixes the following bug:

* The fix for CVE-2011-3192 provided by the RHSA-2011:1245 update
introduced regressions in the way httpd handled certain Range HTTP header
values. This update corrects those regressions. (BZ#736593, BZ#736594)

All httpd users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
backported patches to correct these issues. After installing the updated
packages, the httpd daemon must be restarted for the update to take effect.

4. Solution:

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

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

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

736593 - httpd: RHSA-2011:1245 regressions [rhel-5]
736594 - httpd: RHSA-2011:1245 regressions [rhel-4]
740045 - CVE-2011-3368 httpd: reverse web proxy vulnerability
