CRITICAL:
Less critical

IMPACT:
Privilege escalation, DoS

WHERE:
Local system

SOFTWARE:
Apache 1.3.x

.htaccess file.

Furthermore, in Apache2 the AF_UNIX socket used by "mod_cgid" to
communicate with the cgid daemon or CGI script is not handled
properly.
 
Versions 1.3.28 and prior are vulnerable.
