Apache always generates 302 Found when a page doesn't exist

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I can't figure out why Apache always generates a 302 Found status even though it is (correctly) going to an error page.

It's causing me to fail PCI compliance scans because they are testing to see if I have badevilscript.php on my server, so they check www.mydomain.com/badevilscript.php and it returns "302 Found" even though the file doesn't exist.

What could cause this?
