André Malo discovered buffer overflows [0] in the mod_alias and
mod_rewrite modules of the Apache [1] webserver. These occurred if
a regular expression with more than 9 capturing parenthesis was
configured. To exploit this, an attacker would need to be able to
locally create a carefully crafted configuration file (.htaccess or
httpd.conf). The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) project
assigned the id CAN-2003-0542 [2] to the problem.

Please check whether you are affected by running "<prefix>/bin/rpm -q
apache". If you have the "apache" package installed and its version
is affected (see above), we recommend that you immediately upgrade it
(see Solution). [3][4]

Select the updated source RPM appropriate for your OpenPKG release
[5][6], fetch it from the OpenPKG FTP service [7][8] or a mirror
location, verify its integrity [9], build a corresponding binary RPM
from it [3] and update your OpenPKG installation by applying the
binary RPM [4]. For the current release OpenPKG 1.3, perform the
following operations to permanently fix the security problem (for
other releases adjust accordingly).

$ ftp ftp.openpkg.org
ftp> bin
ftp> cd release/1.3/UPD
ftp> get apache-1.3.28-1.3.1.src.rpm
ftp> bye
$ <prefix>/bin/rpm -v --checksig apache-1.3.28-1.3.1.src.rpm
$ <prefix>/bin/rpm --rebuild apache-1.3.28-1.3.1.src.rpm
$ su -
# <prefix>/bin/rpm -Fvh <prefix>/RPM/PKG/apache-1.3.28-1.3.1.*.rpm
