Synopsis
=======
A bug in Apache may allow a remote attacker to perform a Denial of
Service attack.

Background
=========
The Apache HTTP Server Project is a featureful, freely-available HTTP
(Web) server.

Affected packages
================
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package         /   Vulnerable   /                     Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  net-www/apache      < 2.0.54-r9                      >= 2.0.54-r9
                                                                 < 2.0

Description
==========
Filip Sneppe discovered that Apache improperly handles byterange
requests to CGI scripts.

Impact
=====
A remote attacker may access vulnerable scripts in a malicious way,
exhausting all RAM and swap space on the server, resulting in a Denial
of Service of the Apache server.

Workaround
=========
There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
=========
All apache users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-www/apache-2.0.54-r9"
