Description Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2013-04-19 00:26:30 EDT
It was found that mod_rewrite writes data to a log file without sanitizing non-printable characters. A remote attacker could use this flaw to write terminal escape sequences to log files (if the RewriteLog directive was used by mod_rewrite). This could possibly cause arbitrary command execution, via HTTP requests containing an escape sequence for a terminal emulator. (if for example the log files were viewed in a terminal emulator)
