Apache flaw allows internal network access

angry tapir (1463043) writes | more than 2 years ago

Bug 1

angry tapir writes "A yet-to-be-patched flaw discovered in the Apache HTTP server allows attackers to access protected resources on the internal network if some rewrite rules are not defined properly. The vulnerability affects Apache installations that operate in reverse proxy mode, a type of configuration used for load balancing, caching and other operations that involve the distribution of resources over multiple servers."

But do we need to know about every security on every major open source project? I'll admit, sometimes I care, but the best people to care about this stuff are the devs of the projects.

Any given foss project has a long listing of bugs on their respective bug reporting platforms...anyone interested in issues with a project can search there ( I do this often for the projects I follow).

We support a small subset of HTML, namely these tags:

  • ul
  • li
  • dl
  • dt
  • dd

"ecode" can be used for code snippets, for example:
