Problem description

The Apache web server comes with a module called mod_rewrite which is used to rewrite URLs presented by the client prior to further processing. There is a flaw in the mod_rewrite logic that allows an attacker to view arbitrary files on the server system if they contain regular expression references. All Linux-Mandrake users using Apache are encouraged to upgrade to these updated versions that fix this flaw. Update: The Apache package for 7.1 had a problem with improper permissions on the suexec wrapper which prevented it from running if the apache-suexec package was installed. As well, the uninstall script would exit with errors. Both issues are fixed. The new md5 checksums are listed below.
