Description

The affected asset is vulnerable to this vulnerability ONLY if a local user is authorized to create server side include (SSI) files. Review your web server configuration for validation. A buffer overflow in mod_include could allow a local user who is authorised to create server side include (SSI) files to gain the privileges of a httpd child.
