Comment 1 Mark J. Cox 2008-01-28 11:30:43 EST
The mod_digest module does not properly verify the nonce of a client
response by using a AuthNonce secret. This could allow a malicious
user who is able to sniff network traffic to conduct a replay attack
against a website using Digest protection. Note that mod_digest
implements an older version of the MD5 Digest Authentication
specification, which is known not to work with modern browsers. This
issue does not affect mod_auth_digest.
