Subject Re: [TC3.2.3][PATCH] mod_jk / mod_rewrite bug fix
Date Wed, 15 Aug 2001 18:06:46 GMT
Personally, I agree with Justin and Costin that mod_jk should be able to use
the uri field.

Having said that, I'd like to point out that the mod_jk.c in j-t-c is
flat-out broken.  It doesn't handle the case where the '?' itself is
encoded.  Since this case is part of a currently popular attack on IIS, it
will show up.
