Vulnerability Assessment Details

Apache <= 1.3.33 htpasswd local overflow

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for Apache <= 1.3.33

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host appears to be running Apache 1.3.33 or older.

There is a local buffer overflow in the 'htpasswd' command in these
versions that may permit a local user to gain elevated rights if
'htpasswd' is run setuid or a remote user to run arbitrary commands
remotely if the script is accessible through a CGI.

*** Note that Nessus solely relied on the version number
*** of the remote server to issue this warning. This might
*** be a false positive

Solution : Make sure htpasswd does not run setuid and is not accessible
through any CGI scripts.
