Description SourceBrella 2016-07-12 09:04:53 UTC
The code is as following.

static int parse_ap_expr(include_ctx_t *ctx, const char *expr, int *was_error)

     ap_expr_info_t expr_info


     ctx->info = &expr_info


     return ...

A stack address &expr_info is returned as a side effect.

The function is here: modules/filters/mod_include.c

Did you ever see a symptom on this?
Comment 4 SourceBrella 2016-07-18 05:58:17 UTC
I have not seen any symptom, but it is indeed a dangerous operation.

Fixed in 2.4.25

I found a similar problem in "support/htpasswd.c".
