yes, I know it is good
but can't see why this is a sufficient condition to
say "not vulnerable"
of course, what I can see is that if I got another
page or make a fault then I can say "it is vulnerable"
do you see my point? ;-)
I think it is not a two way relation: if A imply B do
not meant B imply A
but, I am not saying that centos binary are
vulnerables!!! just that I can't find an explanation
to say "not vulnerable" because uptreams is not.
also, I could not had the time yet to verify what is
the the following fix to mod_rewrite:
* Tue Jun 20 2006 Joe Orton <jorton at redhat.com>
- add mod_rewrite ldap scheme handling fix
does anybody know if this is the source code fix to
this vulnerability (back ported)?
the date of this fix is before the date of the redhat
bugtrack and before the CVS assignation (20060720)
so it looks not related but I could be wrong...
PD: I guess this is the first time I can see the
difference that some people try to stress when they
say : "they are not RHEL clones, they are recompilations"
