Description

The affected asset is vulnerable to this vulnerability ONLY if it is running one of the following modules: mod_status AND the server-status page is publicly accessible and ExtendedStatus is enabled. Review your web server configuration for validation. A flaw was found in the mod_status module. On sites where the server-status page is publicly accessible and ExtendedStatus is enabled this could lead to a cross-site scripting attack. Note that the server-status page is not enabled by default and it is best practice to not make this publicly available.
