Vulnerabilities found in HTTPD in VMware vFabric Enterprise Ready Server 4.0.3 (2008680)

Purpose

The most recent release of vFabric Enterprise Ready Server is ERS 4.0.3, which includes httpd 2.2.17 and 2.0.64. Four vulnerabilities have been found and resolved in more recent versions of Apache Software Foundation httpd.
 
This article provides information about addressing these vulnerabilities via vFabric Enterprise Ready Server .

Resolution

There is a patch available for ERS 4.0.3. This patch is recommended to address CVE-2011-3192, CVE-2011-0419, CVE-2011-3348, and CVE-2011-3368 for httpd 2.2.17 and (where applicable) httpd 2.0.64. The server version number does not change when patched (so, there is no upgrade to httpd 2.2.21 currently), but the vulnerabilities are addressed.
 
For more information about the patch, see Security Vulnerabilities Fixed in 4.0.3 SP1 in Getting Started With vFabric Enterprise Ready Server. You can download the patch from the Download Center if you have ERS entitlements.
