http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2008-2364

Description:
Previous versions of the httpd package contain multiple vulnerabilities:
mod_proxy_balancer is vulnerable to a cross-site request forgery (CSRF)
attack in which a trusted user may be able to gain privileges, and
mod_proxy_http is vulnerable to a Denial of Service attack.

In its default configuration, rPath Linux 2 and rPath Appliance Platform
Linux Service 2 are not vulnerable to these attacks.
