Description:
Previous versions of the httpd package are vulnerable to multiple
Denial of Service attacks, one of which allows a remote attacker
to crash mod_proxy using a maliciously crafted HTTP request.

In its default configuration, rPath Linux 1 is not vulnerable to
these attacks.

Note that two additional vulnerabilities fixed in httpd 2.0.61,
CVE-2007-1863 and CVE-2006-5752, were already fixed in a previous
update to rPath Linux.
