Synopsis
=======
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Apache.

Background
=========
The Apache HTTP server is one of the most popular web servers on the
Internet.

Affected packages
================
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package             /  Vulnerable  /                   Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  www-servers/apache       < 2.2.8                         >= 2.2.8

Description
==========
Adrian Pastor and Amir Azam (ProCheckUp) reported that the HTTP Method
specifier header is not properly sanitized when the HTTP return code is
"413 Request Entity too large" (CVE-2007-6203). The mod_proxy_balancer
module does not properly check the balancer name before using it
(CVE-2007-6422). The mod_proxy_ftp does not define a charset in its
answers (CVE-2008-0005). Stefano Di Paola (Minded Security) reported
that filenames are not properly sanitized within the mod_negociation
module (CVE-2008-0455, CVE-2008-0456).

Impact
=====
A remote attacker could entice a user to visit a malicious URL or send
specially crafted HTTP requests (i.e using Adobe Flash) to perform
Cross-Site Scripting and HTTP response splitting attacks, or conduct a
Denial of Service attack on the vulnerable web server.

Workaround
=========
There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
=========
All Apache users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-servers/apache-2.2.8"
