SOT Linux Security Advisory
1. Problem description
The Apache HTTP server is a powerful, full-featured, efficient, and freely-available Web server.
A buffer overflow could occur in mod_alias and mod_rewrite when a regular expression with more than 9 captures is configured. Users who can create or modify configuration files (httpd.conf or .htaccess, for example) could trigger this.
The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project(cve.mitre.org/) has assigned the name CAN-2003-0542 to this issue.
