Description Arenas Belon, Carlo Marcelo 2001-03-06 22:11:39 UTC
As explained on http://www.apache.org/dist/CHANGES_1.3

there was a dangerous interacion between the pre-1.3.18 mod_negotiation and
mod_dir/mod_autoindex that could make the Apache server to show the listing
of a directory instead of the negociated index.html if a very long path was
used (one could be created using slashes and dot artificially)

taking that all three modules are enabled on default on RedHat all what is
needed is that someone enables the MultiView option (as on /icons) to
become vulnerable.
