Description

The affected asset is vulnerable to this vulnerability ONLY if mod_status pages are publicly accessible. Review your web server configuration for validation. A flaw was found in the mod_status module. On sites where mod_status is enabled and the status pages were publicly accessible, a cross-site scripting attack is possible. Note that the server-status page is not enabled by default and it is best practice to not make this publicly available.

Solution(s)

  • apache-httpd-upgrade-1_3_41

  • apache-httpd-upgrade-2_2_8
