Project description.

The Apache HTTP Server Project is an effort to develop and maintain an open-source HTTP server for modern operating systems including UNIX and Windows NT.

The goal of this project is to provide a secure, efficient and extensible server that provides HTTP services in sync with the current HTTP standards

Apache 2.0.64 Changelog
  • SECURITY: CVE-2010-1452 (cve.mitre.org) mod_dav: Fix Handling of requests without a path segment. PR: 49246 [Mark Drayton, Jeff Trawick]
  • SECURITY: CVE-2009-1891 (cve.mitre.org) Fix a potential Denial-of-Service attack against mod_deflate or other modules, by forcing the server to consume CPU time in compressing a large file after a client disconnects. PR 39605. [Joe Orton, Ruediger Pluem]
  • SECURITY: CVE-2009-3095 (cve.mitre.org) mod_proxy_ftp: sanity check authn credentials. [Stefan Fritsch , Joe Orton]
  • SECURITY: CVE-2009-3094 (cve.mitre.org) mod_proxy_ftp: NULL pointer dereference on error paths. [Stefan Fritsch , Joe Orton]
  • SECURITY: CVE-2009-3555 (cve.mitre.org) mod_ssl: Comprehensive fix of the TLS renegotiation prefix injection attack when compiled against OpenSSL version 0.9.8m or later. Introduces the 'SSLInsecureRenegotiation' directive to reopen this vulnerability and offer unsafe legacy renegotiation with clients which do not yet support the new secure renegotiation protocol, RFC 5746. [Joe Orton, and with thanks to the OpenSSL Team]
  • SECURITY: CVE-2009-3555 (cve.mitre.org) mod_ssl: A partial fix for the TLS renegotiation prefix injection attack for OpenSSL versions prior to 0.9.8l; reject any client-initiated renegotiations. Forcibly disable keepalive for the connection if there is any buffered data readable. Any configuration which requires renegotiation for per-directory/location access control is still vulnerable, unless using openssl 0.9.8l or later. [Joe Orton, Ruediger Pluem, Hartmut Keil , Rainer Jung]
  • SECURITY: CVE-2010-0434 (cve.mitre.org) Ensure each subrequest has a shallow copy of headers_in so that the parent request headers are not corrupted. Elimiates a problematic optimization in the case of no request body. PR 48359 [Jake Scott, William Rowe, Ruediger Pluem]
  • SECURITY: CVE-2008-2364 (cve.mitre.org) mod_proxy_http: Better handling of excessive interim responses from origin server to prevent potential denial of service and high memory usage. Reported by Ryujiro Shibuya. [Ruediger Pluem, Joe Orton, Jim Jagielski]
  • SECURITY: CVE-2010-0425 (cve.mitre.org) mod_isapi: Do not unload an isapi .dll module until the request processing is completed, avoiding orphaned callback pointers. [Brett Gervasoni , Jeff Trawick]
  • SECURITY: CVE-2008-2939 (cve.mitre.org) mod_proxy_ftp: Prevent XSS attacks when using wildcards in the path of the FTP URL. Discovered by Marc Bevand of Rapid7. [Ruediger Pluem]
  • Fix recursive ErrorDocument handling. PR 36090 [Chris Darroch]
  • mod_ssl: Do not do overlapping memcpy. PR 45444 [Joe Orton]
  • Add Set-Cookie and Set-Cookie2 to the list of headers allowed to pass through on a 304 response. [Nick Kew]
