Description Josh Bressers 2007-07-23 17:14:43 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #218715 +++

It has recently come to our attention that CVE-2000-1191 is not fixed in the
htdig packages shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1 and 3.  This flaw is
fixed in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 by the htdig-3.2.0b6-unescaped_output.patch
patch file.

More details regarding this flaw are available here:

To quote that page (in the event the URL becomes invalid someday)

    When requesting a URL such as:

    The htDig engine will reply with an error saying that it could not find the   
    configuration file 'aaa', but the error string includes the full directory  
    path of the configuration file.

This bug is a clone for RHEL2.1, which is still vulnerable to this flaw.
Comment 1 Adam Tkac 2007-07-25 09:06:11 EDT
This is "pseudo-security" issue. I don't think that is exploitable when someone
knows path to configfile. We will leave 2.1 unfixed...

Comment 2 Josh Bressers 2007-07-25 09:26:51 EDT
The security team agrees.
