Updated apache packages fix security vulnerabilityPublication date: 14 Mar 2019
Affected Mageia releases : 6
CVE: CVE-2018-17189 , CVE-2018-17199
By sending request bodies in a slow loris way to plain resources, the h2 stream for that request unnecessarily occupied a server thread cleaning up that incoming data. This affects only HTTP/2 (mod_http2) connections in Apache HTTP Server versions 2.4.37 and prior (CVE-2018-17189). In Apache HTTP Server 2.4 release 2.4.37 and prior, mod_session checks the session expiry time before decoding the session. This causes session expiry time to be ignored for mod_session_cookie sessions since the expiry time is loaded when the session is decoded (CVE-2018-17199). The apache package has been updated to version 2.4.38, fixing these issues and several other bugs. See the upstream CHANGES files for details.
