mod_perl Apache::Status URI XSS

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote web server uses a module that is affected by a cross-site
scripting vulnerability.

Description :

The remote web server contains an embedded Perl interpreter along with
a version of Apache2::Status / Apache::Status that fails to sanitize
the request URL before using it to generate dynamic HTML output. An
attacker may be able to leverage this to inject arbitrary HTML and
script code into a user's browser to be executed within the security
context of the affected site.
