ePO Hotfix to Remediate Apache HTTP Server

Hello friends,

On August 20, 2011, the Apache Software Foundation released a vulnerability announcement (CVE-2011-3192) concerning a flaw in the way the Apache HTTP Server handles Range HTTP headers that could result in a Denial of Service (DoS) attack.
Because McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator versions 4.0, 4.5, and 4.6.x make use of the Apache HTTP Server software, McAfee has developed Hotfix 701318 to remediate this issue for ePO 4.5 and 4.6.x.

IMPORTANT: ePO 4.0 reached End of Life (EOL) on September 30, 2011. Users with ePO 4.0 must upgrade to a current supported version of ePO to apply the hotfix.
To access the Hotfix, log into the ServicePortal at:, click Download Software Updates under Self Service and locate the entry: EPolicy Orchestrator EPOHF701318.

For more information on this issue, see KB73310
