The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.
Cross-site scripting (XSS) flaws were found in the mod_proxy_balancer
module's manager web interface. If a remote attacker could trick a
user, who was logged into the manager web interface, into visiting a
specially crafted URL, it would lead to arbitrary web script execution
in the context of the user's manager interface session.
It was found that mod_rewrite did not filter terminal escape sequences
from its log file. If mod_rewrite was configured with the RewriteLog
directive, a remote attacker could use specially crafted HTTP requests
to inject terminal escape sequences into the mod_rewrite log file. If
a victim viewed the log file with a terminal emulator, it could result
in arbitrary command execution with the privileges of that user.
Cross-site scripting (XSS) flaws were found in the mod_info,
mod_status, mod_imagemap, mod_ldap, and mod_proxy_ftp modules. An
attacker could possibly use these flaws to perform XSS attacks if they
were able to make the victim's browser generate an HTTP request with a
specially crafted Host header. (CVE-2012-3499)
