Description Mark J. Cox 2009-04-21 09:07:11 UTC
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier CVE-2009-1191 to the following vulnerability:

mod_proxy_ajp in Apache httpd 2.2.11 allows remote attackers to obtain sensitive information via an arbitrary request from a HTTP client, in opportunistic circumstances involving a request from a different client that included a Content-Length header but no POST data.

This is similar to the issue CVE-2008-5519 in mod_jk

due to http://svn.apache.org/viewvc?view=rev&revision=711779

Patch will be applied to 2.2.12:
