Description Tomas Hoger 2008-10-06 08:51:32 UTC
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier CVE-2008-4360 to the following vulnerability:

mod_userdir in lighttpd before 1.4.20, when a case-insensitive operating system
or filesystem is used, performs case-sensitive comparisons on filename
components in configuration options, which might allow remote attackers to
bypass intended access restrictions, as demonstrated by a request for a .PHP
file when there is a configuration rule for .php files.

Affected versions:
all versions before 1.4.20 (1.5 before r2308)
