Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 5
Name        : httpd
Version     : 2.2.2
Release     : 1.2
Summary     : Apache HTTP Server
Description :
The Apache HTTP Server is a powerful, efficient, and extensible
web server.

Update Information:

This update fixes a security issue in the mod_rewrite module.

Mark Dowd of McAfee Avert Labs reported an off-by-one
security problem in the LDAP scheme handling of the
mod_rewrite module. Where RewriteEngine was enabled, and for
certain RewriteRules, this could lead to a pointer being
written out of bounds. (CVE-2006-3747)

The ability to exploit this issue is dependent on the stack
layout for a particular compiled version of mod_rewrite.
The Fedora project has analyzed Fedora Core 4 and 5 binaries
and determined that these distributions are vulnerable to
this issue. However this flaw does not affect a default
installation of Fedora Core; users who do not use, or have
not enabled, the Rewrite module are not affected by this
