If a timeout occurred reading a response from a backend on a persistent connection, the backend connection was not closed. The response could subsequently be read and delivered to an unrelated client. This issue has been assigned CVE name CVE-2010-2791, and is equivalent to CVE-2010-2068 (fixed in 2.2.16) but affects httpd on Unix. The bug was fixed* in 2.2.10 but the security impact was not known at the time. I'll update http://httpd.apache.org/security/vulnerabilities_22.html to reflect this shortly. Regards, Joe * fix for 2.2.x branch: http://svn.apache.org/viewvc?rev=699841&view=rev
