The MITRE CVE dictionary describes this issue as:

Buffer overflow in htdigest in Apache 2.0.52 may allow attackers to execute arbitrary code via a long realm argument. NOTE: since htdigest is normally only locally accessible and not setuid or setgid, there are few attack vectors which would lead to an escalation of privileges, unless htdigest is executed from a CGI program. Therefore this may not be a vulnerability.

Red Hat does not consider this to be a vulnerability. htdigest is not supplied setuid or setgid and should not be run from a CGI program.
