Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 20275
Apache should not be distributed with any default cgi
Last modified: 2007-03-26 23:37:16 EDT
apache's package is bundled with two "test" (default) cgi installed that
are remotely accesible on :
they are not currently enabled (as no +x bit is set) but they would send an
"Internal Server Error" message on excecution, letting a remote
cracker to diferenciate between 7.0 and 6.x systems.
also, installing non functional scripts is problematic as explained on
#20270, but those scripts are of no utility and should be avoided when
possible as have been used as a remote breaking tool at least once on the
as there is no reference of the reason why it are now enabled i guess it
should be on error, so a fix should be made.
prinenv and test-cgi are still on apache-1.3.14-6 from beta2
They will be moved from the cgi-bin directory to the documentation tree in
1.3.14-7 and later.
