Amazon Linux AMI Security Advisory: ALAS-2015-555
Advisory Release Date: 2015-06-24 10:15 Pacific

A remote, unauthenticated attacker could send a request for a virtual transaction name that does not exist, causing mod_dav_svn to crash. (CVE-2014-8108 )

A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the way the mod_dav_svn module handled REPORT requests. A remote, unauthenticated attacker could use a specially crafted REPORT request to crash mod_dav_svn. (CVE-2014-3580 )
