1. Topic:

Updated Secure Web Server packages are now available for users of Secure Web Server 3.2.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Secure Web Server 3.2 - i386

3. Problem description:

Security bugs in versions of Apache prior to 1.3.14 also affect Secure Web Server. A new release which incorporates 1.3.14 is now available.

4. Solution:

Some of these files are distributed in rhmask format and may only be used by individuals who have purchased Red Hat Linux 6.2 Professional.

To produce installable RPM files from the rhmask files, retrieve the rhmask files via ftp and type the following:

rhmask secureweb-3.2-12.i386.rpm secureweb-3.2.2-4.i386.rpm.rhmask

The original RPM is located only on your Secure Web Server CD, and cannot be obtained via the Internet. Note: if you do not have the original RPM located in the same directory as the rhmask file, you will need to prefix the name of the RPM with the full path name to its location (i.e. on your installation CD).

For each RPM for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filename]

where filename is the name of the RPM package.

To restart your Secure Web Server, type the following:

/etc/rc.d/init.d/httpsd restart

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla for more info):

14147 - The conf directive "SSLOptions +StdEnvVars" for mod_ssl will cause every request to seg fault.

rpm --checksig --nogpg <filename>
