Description Brian DeFeyter 2005-05-12 10:19:41 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0

Description of problem:
The current stable httpd package in RHEL4 contains a bug in APR which requires R_OK to be present on a directory in order to read it's contents when really only X_OK is necessary.

This bug was fixed in the Apache 2.0.53 release

More information is available here: http://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=30137

This is somewhat of a security issue, as it requires more permissions to be set than necessary to allow httpd access to web content.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
httpd-2.0.52-9.ent

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
N/A

Hello,

I'm just wondering if there's going to be a patch released for this at some
point in the near future?

Thanks,
Brian
