Description

Henning Brauer discovered a programming error in Apache 1.3's mod_access that results in the netmasks in IP address access control rules being interpreted incorrectly on 64-bit, big-endian platforms. In some cases, this could cause a `deny from' IP address access control rule including a netmask to fail.
