                Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory
________________________________________________________________________

Package name:           apache2
Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2003:096
Date:                   September 26th, 2003

Affected versions:      9.1
________________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

 A problem was discovered in Apache2 where CGI scripts that output more
 than 4k of output to STDERR will hang the script's execution which can
 cause a Denial of Service on the httpd process because it is waiting
 for more input from the CGI that is not forthcoming due to the locked
 write() call in mod_cgi.
 
 On systems that use scripts that output more than 4k to STDERR, this
 could cause httpd processes to hang and once the maximum connection
 limit is reached, Apache will no longer respond to requests. 
 
 The updated packages provided use the latest mod_cgi.c from the Apache
 2.1 CVS version.
 
 Users may have to restart apache by hand after the upgrade by issuing
 a "service httpd restart".
