http://web.nvd.nist.gov/view/vuln/detail?vulnId=CVE-2011-0419 is being a pain, an update for Fedora would be greatly appreciated.
This is related to if not a dupe of https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=CVE-2011-0419 but that issue seems to only be addressed in RHEL. At least one security company (Security Metrics) considers 2.2.17 by itself enough of an issue to fail customers, even if updating other packages solves the issue.
Correction, our security company says we need > 2.2.18, so I guess only 2.2.9 would pass.
CVE-2011-0419 (and related CVE-2011-1928) affected apr library used by httpd. While httpd source embed copy of the apr library sources, Fedora httpd packages do not use embedded apr and link against system apr package. apr update fixing this flaw was pushed to stable before this bug was created:
Does anyone disagree with closing this notabug?
I agree; closing out.
