Description Marcus Meissner 2011-09-08 11:55:20 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of internal tracker Bug #713966,
as that one had private customer information +++

There was a posting on full-disclosure recently about an apache2 remote denial of service vulnerability, see:

  * http://marc.info/?t=131379269200002&r=1&w=2
  * http://marc.info/?t=131409787700005&r=1&w=2

Apache 2.2, 2.0 and 1.3 are affected, so all shipping Apache versions on our product.

Apache updates for:
SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 SP1
SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 SP3
SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 SP4
openSUSE 11.3,11.4
were released, please see http://support.novell.com/security/cve/CVE-2011-3192.html for the released versions.

Mitigation methods:
   - Apply one of the various filtering suggestions from the Apache project:
   - Restrict the ulimit of the apache processes to avoid running the system
     out of memory. This requires usage of a forking Apache worker, like apache2-prefork.
