Description Guilherme de Almeida Suckevicz 2021-09-16 20:22:56 UTC
ap_escape_quotes() may write beyond the end of a buffer when given malicious input. No included modules pass untrusted data to these functions, but third-party / external modules may. This issue affects Apache HTTP Server 2.4.48 and earlier.
