Description

Apache was vulnerable to cross site scripting issues. It was shown that malicious HTML tags can be embedded in client web requests if the server or script handling the request does not carefully encode all information displayed to the user. Using these vulnerabilities attackers could, for example, obtain copies of your private cookies used to authenticate you to other sites.
