    3. Description:
    
    The httpd packages provide the Apache HTTP Server, a powerful, efficient,
    and extensible web server.
    
    A race condition flaw, leading to heap-based buffer overflows, was found in
    the mod_status httpd module. A remote attacker able to access a status page
    served by mod_status on a server using a threaded Multi-Processing Module
    (MPM) could send a specially crafted request that would cause the httpd
    child process to crash or, possibly, allow the attacker to execute
    arbitrary code with the privileges of the "apache" user. (CVE-2014-0226)
    
    A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the mod_cache httpd module.
    A malicious HTTP server could cause the httpd child process to crash when
    the Apache HTTP Server was used as a forward proxy with caching.
    (CVE-2013-4352)
    
    A denial of service flaw was found in the mod_proxy httpd module. A remote
    attacker could send a specially crafted request to a server configured as a
    reverse proxy using a threaded Multi-Processing Modules (MPM) that would
    cause the httpd child process to crash. (CVE-2014-0117)
    
    A denial of service flaw was found in the way httpd's mod_deflate module
    handled request body decompression (configured via the "DEFLATE" input
    filter). A remote attacker able to send a request whose body would be
    decompressed could use this flaw to consume an excessive amount of system
    memory and CPU on the target system. (CVE-2014-0118)
    
    A denial of service flaw was found in the way httpd's mod_cgid module
    executed CGI scripts that did not read data from the standard input.
    A remote attacker could submit a specially crafted request that would cause
    the httpd child process to hang indefinitely. (CVE-2014-0231)
    
    All httpd24-httpd users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
    which contain backported patches to correct these issues. After installing
    the updated packages, the httpd daemon will be restarted automatically.
