Question

CentOS httpd installation is vulnerable to ARME exploit, will not update to latest, how would I change my install to the latest Apache?

It came to my attention lately that my HTTPD installation on a CentOS droplet is vulnerable to the old ARME exploit (Apache remote memory exhaustion) and running yum update does not update to the firmware due to a release choice.

How would I go about moving my httpd installation (complete with SSL) to a newer Apache version that is not vulnerable to this exploit?

Or download the apache (and php) source and compile the latest version?

I’m not that familiar with CentOS but you could try updating the to latest CentOS version and see if that upgrades Apache along with it
