Redhat and CentOS Update for httpd

 Redhat Update for httpd

Red Hat has issued an update for httpd. This fixes multiple vulnerabilities, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks and compromise a vulnerable system.

1) The "do_rewritelog()" function (modules/mappers/mod_rewrite.c) does not properly handle certain escape sequences when writing to the log file and can be exploited by sending a specially crafted HTTP request.

Successful exploitation of this vulnerability may allow execution of arbitrary commands but requires the user to view the log file in a terminal emulator.
