This version of Apache is our latest GA release of the new generation 2.4.x branch of Apache HTTPD and represents fifteen years of innovation by the project, and is recommended over all previous releases. This release of Apache is principally a security, feature and bug fix release. CVE-2014-0098 (cve.mitre.org) Segfaults with truncated cookie logging. mod_log_config: Prevent segfaults when logging truncated cookies. Clean up the cookie logging parser to recognize only the cookie=value pairs, not valueless cookies.

Eliminates a potential denial of service from specifically crafted DAV WRITE requests Also in this release are some exciting new features including: *) Finer control over scoping of RewriteRules *) Unix Domain Socket (UDS) support for mod_proxy backends. *) Support for larger shared memory sizes for mod_socache_shmcb *) mod_lua and mod_ssl enhancements *) Support named groups and backreferences within the LocationMatch, DirectoryMatch, FilesMatch and ProxyMatch directives. We consider this release to be the best version of Apache available, and encourage users of all prior versions to upgrade. [NOTE: 2.4.8 was not released.] Apache HTTP Server 2.4.9 is available for download from: http://httpd.apache.org/download.cgi Apache 2.4 offers numerous enhancements, improvements, and performance boosts over the 2.2 codebase. For an overview of new features introduced since 2.4 please see: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/trunk/new_features_2_4.html Please see the CHANGES_2.4 file, linked from the download page, for a full list of changes. A condensed list, CHANGES_2.4.9 includes only those changes introduced since the prior 2.4 release. A summary of all of the security vulnerabilities addressed in this and earlier releases is available: http://httpd.apache.org/security/vulnerabilities_24.html This release requires the Apache Portable Runtime (APR) version 1.5.x and APR-Util version 1.5.x. The APR libraries must be upgraded for all features of httpd to operate correctly. This release builds on and extends the Apache 2.2 API. Modules written for Apache 2.2 will need to be recompiled in order to run with Apache 2.4, and require minimal or no source code changes. http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/httpd/httpd/trunk/VERSIONING When upgrading or installing this version of Apache, please bear in mind that if you intend to use Apache with one of the threaded MPMs (other than the Prefork MPM), you must ensure that any modules you will be using (and the libraries they depend on) are thread-safe. - --------------------------END INCLUDED TEXT-------------------- You have received this e-mail bulletin as a result of your organisation's registration with AusCERT.
