<p>
The Apache HTTP Server is one of the most popular web servers on the
Internet.

<description>
<p>
Multiple stack-based buffer overflows in mod_alias and mod_rewrite allow
attackers who can create or edit configuration files including .htaccess
files, to cause a denial of service and execute arbitrary code via a regular
expression containing more than 9 captures.
</p>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>
An attacker may cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user that is running apache.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time, other than to disable both
mod_alias and mod_rewrite.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
It is recommended that all Gentoo Linux users who are running
net-misc/apache 1.x upgrade:
</p>
<code>
# emerge sync
# emerge -pv apache
# emerge '&gt;=www-servers/apache-1.3.29'
# emerge clean
# /etc/init.d/apache restart</code>
</resolution>
