Fedora has issued an update for httpd. This fixes some vulnerabilities, which can be exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service) and disclose potentially sensitive information.
1) An error in the mod_cache module in the handling of Cache-Control headers can be exploited to crash the child process via specially crafted requests. This could lead to a DoS when using a threaded Multi-Processing Module.
2) An error within the handling of headers from cache pool objects in the mod_mem_cache module can be exploited to disclose potentially sensitive information.
2) An error in the mod_proxy module can be exploited to cause a DoS.
