Apache mod_ssl Host: Header XSS

This script is Copyright (C) 2003-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote web server module has a cross-site scripting vulnerability.

Description :

According to the web server banner, the version of mod_ssl running on
the remote host has a cross-site scripting vulnerability. A remote
attacker could exploit this by tricking a user into requesting a
maliciously crafted URL, resulting in stolen credentials.

Note that several Linux distributions (such as RedHat) patched the old
version of this module. Therefore, this might be a false positive.
Please check with your vendor to determine if you really are affected by
this flaw.
