Did You Check This???
Authored by: Anonymous on Jun 16, '01 02:55:10PM

Just wanted to point out here... as I understand it, the bug is not with ".htaccess"-protected directories, but ony with directories protected using Location or Directory tags specified in httpd.conf (Apache's global configuration file). When you use .htaccess files, performance is slightly degraded. The article points out that the more performant security methods (specifying Location or Directory tags in httpd.conf) are the ones that have the security hole.

Anyway, Apple's recent open-sourcing of seems to address the problem for those who care to install it.
