The remote web proxy is affected by multiple information disclosure
According to its self-identified version number, the Privoxy installed
on the remote host is a version prior to 3.0.21. It is, therefore,
affected by multiple information disclosure vulnerabilities due to the
application not properly handling Proxy-Authenticate and
Proxy-Authorization headers. This can allow a remote, malicious HTTP
server to spoof the intended proxy service via a 407 (Proxy
Authentication Required) HTTP status code and thereby gain access to
Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead
relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
