Subject Re: [PATCH] PR#1031 using a type map as a custom error document
Date Mon, 25 May 1998 07:47:27 GMT
Hey can you explain why you're using r->no_local_copy?  I'm confused... 
Actually I think I'm just confused because r->no_local_copy appears to
be true iff this expression is true:

    r->status != HTTP_OK && !is_initial_req(r)

... and that doesn't make sense to me as a fix for this. 

Of course I'm the person who introduced the bug... mod_negotiation.c:

|revision 1.43
|date: 1997/06/24 03:03:49;  author: dgaudet;  state: Exp;  lines: +9 -6
|Fix a few security problems.  Avoid problems with pipes, sockets, etc. in
|the filesystem.  Use sub_req_lookup_file for various functions that
|open ancillary files, so that they have to pass the symlink tests.  Also
|disallow slashes in HeaderName and ReadmeName to avoid ../../../hacks.

... I'd say that the correct fix is to remove the r->status test from
read_type_map and push it into read_types_multi, which is the only caller
that needs the security protection.  When read_type_map is called by
handle_map_file() the security protection has already been taken care of.
