Description Joe Orton 2003-11-18 10:41:52 EST
CAN-2003-0542 affects 1.3.27 

Multiple stack-based buffer overflows in (1) mod_alias and (2)
mod_rewrite for Apache before 1.3.29 allow attackers to can create
configuration files to cause a denial of service (crash) or execute
arbitrary code via a regular expression with more than 9 captures.

This issue affects the apache package shipped with all variants of Red
Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1.
