  An update that solves one vulnerability and has four fixes
  is now available. It includes one version update.

Description:


  This update brings Apache to version 2.2.12.

  The main reason is the enablement of the Server Name
  Indication (SNI) that  allows several SSL-enabled domains
  on one IP address (FATE#311973). See the
  SSLStrictSNIVHostCheck directive as documented in
  /usr/share/apache2/manual/mod/mod_ssl.html.en

  Also the patch for the ByteRange remote denial of service
  attack  (CVE-2011-3192) was refined and the configuration
  options used by upstream  were added.

  Introduce new config option: Allow MaxRanges Number of
  ranges requested, if exceeded, the complete content is
  served. default: 200 0|unlimited: unlimited none: Range
  headers are ignored. This option is a backport from 2.2.21.

  Also fixed were

  * CVE-2011-3348: Denial of service in proxy_ajp when
  using a undefined method.
  * CVE-2011-3368: Exposure of internal servers via
  reverse proxy methods with mod_proxy enabled and incorrect
  Rewrite or Proxy Rules.

  This update also includes a newer
  apache2-vhost-ssl.template, which  disables SSLv2, and
  allows SSLv3 and strong ciphers only. Please note that
  existing vhosts will not be converted.
