 Problem Description:
 
 A vulnerability was discovered in the the Apache mod_status module
 that could lead to a cross-site scripting attack on sites where the
 server-status page was publically accessible and ExtendedStatus was
 enabled (CVE-2006-5752).
 
 The Apache server also did not verify that a process was an Apache
 child process before sending it signals.  A local attacker with the
 ability to run scripts on the server could manipulate the scoreboard
 and cause arbitrary processes to be terminated (CVE-2007-3304).
 
 Updated packages have been patched to prevent the above issues.
