No, the cookie buffer overflow is the one that is arguably not a problem
in 1.2b4 because it is allocated on the heap, not the stack.  This means
you can't use the standard trick of overwriting the (saved) program
counter, etc. to gain control.  It doesn't necessarily mean it is
unexploitable, but it is generally far far harder.

The mod_dir problem is in 1.2b4.
