3. Description:

The httpd packages provide the Apache HTTP Server, a powerful, efficient,

* A use-after-free flaw was found in the way httpd handled invalid and
previously unregistered HTTP methods specified in the Limit directive used
in an .htaccess file. A remote attacker could possibly use this flaw to
disclose portions of the server memory, or cause httpd child process to
crash. (CVE-2017-9798)

Red Hat would like to thank Hanno Back for reporting this issue.
