"In Apache 1.3 the issue causes a stack overflow.  Due to the nature of
the overflow on 32-bit Unix platforms this will cause a segmentation
violation and the child will terminate.  However on 64-bit platforms the
overflow can be controlled and so for platforms that store return
addresses on the stack it is likely that it is further exploitable. This
could allow arbitrary code to be run on the server as the user the
Apache children are set to run as."

No patches or new releases yet, afaik.
