Alternately, the administrator could configure httpd to reject requests with a header matching a complex regular expression identifing where = character does not occur in the first key=value pair, as in the following syntax; [Proxy-]Authorization: Digest key[,key=value] Credit: The Apache HTTP Server security team would like to thank Robert AwiAcki for reporting this issue.
