Description

The affected asset is vulnerable to this vulnerability ONLY if the AllowOverride directive with certin Options are used. Review your web server configuration for validation. A flaw was found in the handling of the "Options" and "AllowOverride" directives. In configurations using the "AllowOverride" directive with certain "Options=" arguments, local users were not restricted from executing commands from a Server-Side-Include script as intended.
