FreeBSD : Apache 1.3 IP address access control failure on some 64-bit platforms (09d418db-70fd-11d8-873f-0020ed76ef5a)

Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related
updates.

Description :

Henning Brauer discovered a programming error in Apache 1.3's
mod_access that results in the netmasks in IP address access control
rules being interpreted incorrectly on 64-bit, big-endian platforms.
In some cases, this could cause a `deny from' IP address access
control rule including a netmask to fail.
