*) SECURITY: CVE-2007-6422 (cve.mitre.org)
Prevent crash in balancer manager if invalid balancer name is passed
as parameter. Reported by SecurityReason. [Ruediger Pluem]
This issue only affects mod_proxy_balancer and therefore only httpd-2.2
(Enterprise Linux 5, Application Stack v2 only). This is of low security
severity as the balancer is not enabled by default, would be protected to
only allow access by the administrator, and it's only a denial of service if
httpd is configured with a threaded MPM (also not the default).
