Subject [ANNOUNCEMENT] Apache HTTP Server 2.2.9 Released
Date Sat, 14 Jun 2008 11:49:09 GMT
                      Apache HTTP Server 2.2.9 Released

  The Apache Software Foundation and the Apache HTTP Server Project are
  pleased to announce the release of version 2.2.9 of the Apache HTTP  
Server
  ("Apache").  This version of Apache is principally a bug and  
security fix
  release. The following potential security flaws are addressed:

    * CVE-2008-2364 (cve.mitre.org)
      mod_proxy_http: Better handling of excessive interim responses
      from origin server to prevent potential denial of service and high
      memory usage. Reported by Ryujiro Shibuya.

    * CVE-2007-6420 (cve.mitre.org)
      mod_proxy_balancer: Prevent CSRF attacks against the balancer- 
manager
      interface.


  We consider this release to be the best version of Apache available,  
and
  encourage users of all prior versions to upgrade.

  Apache HTTP Server 2.2.9 is available for download from:

    http://httpd.apache.org/download.cgi

  Apache 2.2 offers numerous enhancements, improvements, and performance
  boosts over the 2.0 codebase.  For an overview of new features  
introduced
  since 2.0 please see:

    http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/new_features_2_2.html

  Please see the CHANGES_2.2 file, linked from the download page, for a
  full list of changes.  A condensed list, CHANGES_2.2.9 provides the
  complete list of changes since 2.2.8. A summary of security  
vulnerabilities
  which were addressed in the previous 2.2.8 and earlier releases is  
available:

    http://httpd.apache.org/security/vulnerabilities_22.html

  Apache HTTP Server 1.3.41 and 2.0.63 legacy releases are also  
currently
  available.  See the appropriate CHANGES from the url above.  See the
  corresponding CHANGES files linked from the download page.  The Apache
  HTTP Project developers strongly encourage all users to migrate to
  Apache 2.2, as only limited maintenance is performed on these legacy
  versions.

  This release includes the Apache Portable Runtime (APR) version 1.3.0
  bundled with the tar and zip distributions.  The APR libraries libapr
  and libaprutil (and on Win32, libapriconv) must all be updated to  
ensure
  binary compatibility and address many known platform bugs.

  This release builds on and extends the Apache 2.0 API.  Modules  
written
  for Apache 2.0 will need to be recompiled in order to run with  
Apache 2.2,
  and require minimal or no source code changes.

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.
