Apache HTTP Server httpOnly Cookie Information Disclosure

This script is Copyright (C) 2012-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The web server running on the remote host has an information
disclosure vulnerability.

Description :

The version of Apache HTTP Server running on the remote host has an
information disclosure vulnerability. Sending a request with HTTP
headers long enough to exceed the server limit causes the web server
to respond with an HTTP 400. By default, the offending HTTP header
and value are displayed on the 400 error page. When used in
conjunction with other attacks (e.g., cross-site scripting), this
could result in the compromise of httpOnly cookies.
