Comment 1 Dave 2011-06-29 15:13:50 UTC
What is the status of this? f15 appears to use the same version of apache, so not sure what's going on. Is there a more appropriate place to investigate this?

Comment 2 Tom 2011-07-18 15:10:00 UTC
http://web.nvd.nist.gov/view/vuln/detail?vulnId=CVE-2011-0419 is being a pain, an update for Fedora would be greatly appreciated.

Comment 3 Tom 2011-07-18 15:30:58 UTC
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.

Comment 4 Tom 2011-07-18 16:53:53 UTC
Correction, our security company says we need > 2.2.18, so I guess only 2.2.9 would pass.

Comment 5 Tomas Hoger 2011-09-08 07:20:29 UTC
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:

https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/apr-1.4.5-1.fc14
http://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/package-announce/2011-June/061177.html

Does anyone disagree with closing this notabug?

Comment 6 Joe Orton 2011-11-10 01:30:16 UTC
I agree; closing out.
