Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 44626] New: mod_auth fails on IE when script arguments present
Date Tue, 18 Mar 2008 15:49:41 GMT

           Summary: mod_auth fails on IE when script arguments present
           Product: Apache httpd-2
           Version: 2.2.6
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: mod_auth

When I use mod_auth to secure a page, IE (v6.0.29) appears to only send the
base URI for authentication, in other words, it doesn't include any script
arguments in the URI. The result is an Error 400 page and inability to access
these pages from IE. The relavant line in error_log is:

[Tue Mar 18 11:30:59 2008] [error] [client] Digest: uri
mismatch - </private/photoalb/test.php> does not match request-uri
</private/photoalb/test.php?ig=0&action=generateThumbnailList>, referer:

I realize this is actually probably a bug with Internet Explorer, but I think
it would probably be any easy fix to accomodate MicroSloth's defficincies. I
don't know the details of the authorization scheme, so I don't know if a fix
like this (essentially allowing mod_auth to ignore differences in URL script
arguments) would be compromising security or not.
