Apache 1.3.34 Changelog
  • hsregex: fix potential core dumping on 64 bit machines, such as AMD64. PR 31858. [Glenn Strauss < gs-apache-dev gluelogic.com>]
  • SECURITY: core: If a request contains both Transfer-Encoding and Content-Length headers, remove the Content-Length, mitigating some HTTP Request Splitting/Spoofing attacks. This has no impact on mod_proxy_http, yet affects any module which supports chunked encoding yet fails to prefer T-E: chunked over the Content-Length purported value. [Paul Querna, Joe Orton]
  • Added TraceEnable [on|off|extended] per-server directive to alter the behavior of the TRACE method. This addresses a flaw in proxy conformance to RFC 2616 - previously the proxy server would accept a TRACE request body although the RFC prohibited it. The default remains 'TraceEnable on'. [William Rowe]
  • mod_digest: Fix another nonce string calculation issue. [Eric Covener]
