Description

LSAC(v2)
The httpd packages provide the Apache HTTP Server, a powerful, efficient, and extensible web server. This update fixes the following bugs: * Due to a bug in the "mod_mem_cache" module, an aborted HTTP connection could result in a cached entity becoming corrupt. With this update, the "mod_mem_cache" module has been fixed to correctly handle aborted connections, avoiding cache corruption in this scenario. (BZ#873677) * Due to a bug in the "mod_cache" module, the "304 Not Modified" response from an origin server was not properly handled when a cached entity was being refreshed. Consequently, the entity could be returned to the HTTP client with incorrect headers. With this update, the "mod_cache" module has been modified to correctly handle headers in the "304 Not Modified" response. The cached entity is now returned with correct headers in this scenario. (BZ#873730) All users of httpd are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
