Description Robert Scheck 2007-09-07 13:12:31 EDT
Description of problem:
The Apache Software Foundation and the Apache HTTP Server Project are pleased 
to announce the release of version 2.2.6 of the Apache HTTP Server ("Apache").

This version of Apache is principally a bug and security fix release. The 
following potential security flaws are addressed:

 - CVE-2007-3847: mod_proxy: Prevent reading past the end of a buffer when 
   parsing date-related headers. PR 41144. 
 - CVE-2007-1863: mod_cache: Prevent a segmentation fault if attributes are 
   listed in a Cache-Control header without any value. 
 - CVE-2007-3304: prefork, worker, event MPMs: Ensure that the parent process 
   cannot be forced to kill processes outside its process group. 
 - CVE-2006-5752: mod_status: Fix a possible XSS attack against a site with a 
   public server-status page and ExtendedStatus enabled, for browsers which
   perform charset "detection". Reported by Stefan Esser. 
 - CVE-2006-1862: mod_mem_cache: Copy headers into longer lived storage; header 
   names and values could previously point to cleaned up storage. PR 41551. 

We consider this release to be the best version of Apache available, and 
encourage users of all prior versions to upgrade.

Joe, a simple version bump did the trick for me.
