Apache < 2.2.8 Multiple Vulnerabilities (XSS, DoS)

Synopsis :

The remote web server may be affected by several issues.

Description :

According to its banner, the version of Apache 2.2 installed on the
remote host is older than 2.2.8. Such versions may be affected by
several issues, including :

- A cross-site scripting issue involving mod_imagemap
(CVE-2007-5000).

- A cross-site scripting issue involving 413 error pages
via a malformed HTTP method (PR 44014 / CVE-2007-6203).

- A cross-site scripting issue in mod_status involving
the refresh parameter (CVE-2007-6388).

- A cross-site scripting issue in mod_proxy_balancer
involving the worker route and worker redirect
string of the balancer manager (CVE-2007-6421).

- A denial of service issue in the balancer_handler
function in mod_proxy_balancer can be triggered by
an authenticated user when a threaded Multi-
Processing Module is used (CVE-2007-6422).

- A cross-site scripting issue using UTF-7 encoding
in mod_proxy_ftp exists because it does not
define a charset (CVE-2008-0005).

Note that the remote web server may not actually be affected by these
vulnerabilities. Nessus did not try to determine whether the affected
modules are in use or to check for the issues themselves.
