Updated httpd packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The Apache HTTP Server is a popular web server.
This update fixes the following bug:
* When the mod_proxy module was configured as a reverse proxy using HTTP over SSL/TLS to a back-end server, data from the back end could be incorrectly truncated. This update applies a backported patch that resolves this issue, and using a reverse proxy with HTTP over SSL/TLS no longer causes the Apache HTTP Server to serve corrupted data. (BZ#694158
All users of httpd are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
