Description

The affected asset is vulnerable to this vulnerability ONLY if it is running one of the following modules: mod_rewrite AND specific regular expressions are used in RewriteRule directives. Review your web server configuration for validation. The Rewrite module, mod_rewrite, can allow access to any file on the web server. The vulnerability occurs only with certain specific cases of using regular expression references in RewriteRule directives: If the destination of a RewriteRule contains regular expression references then an attacker will be able to access any file on the server.
