- Vendor Statements

Old versions of the Linux 2.4 kernel allowed the lookup of names containing backslashes over smbfs -- so there were multiple names which would reference any particular file, allowing the bypass of Apache controls such as AddType. Not vulnerable. This issue did not affect the versions of the Linux kernel as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, 4, or 5. This issue was corrected with a backported patch for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1 by RHSA-2007:0672. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=CVE-2007-6514
