           Summary: SetEnv does not allow PATH override
           Product: Apache httpd-2
           Version: 2.2.4
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Core
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: lavr@ncbi.nlm.nih.gov


SetEnv PATH "/usr/bin:/bin"
does not work (it's an undocumented exception among a few more) because of
special treatment in server/util_script.c::ap_add_common_vars(), which always
takes PATH as inherited from Apache startup environment.  The startup
environment can be rather "wide", and narrowing it down with an appropriate
SetEnv PATH (as shown) seems like a good security measure.  But to no avail
with current implementation.  Note that another commonly used environment,
closely related to PATH but only in terms of shared libraries rather than
commands, LD_LIBRARY_PATH *can* be overridden with SetEnv directive.
