Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.

Description :

SITIC discovered a vulnerability in Apache 2's handling of
environmental variable settings in the httpd configuration files (the
main `httpd.conf' and `.htaccess' files). According to a SITIC
advisory :

The buffer overflow occurs when expanding ${ENVVAR} constructs in
.htaccess or httpd.conf files. The function ap_resolve_env() in
server/util.c copies data from environment variables to the character
array tmp with strcat(3), leading to a buffer overflow.
