Updated apache-mod_jk package fixes security vulnerability

Publication date: 01 Jul 2015
Type: security
Affected Mageia releases : 4
CVE: CVE-2014-8111


An information disclosure flaw due to incorrect JkMount/JkUnmount
directives processing was found in the Apache 2 module mod_jk to forward
requests from the Apache web server to Tomcat. A JkUnmount rule for a
subtree of a previous JkMount rule could be ignored. This could allow a
remote attacker to potentially access a private artifact in a tree that
would otherwise not be accessible to them (CVE-2014-8111).
