AS24-U2-000880 - Cookies exchanged between the Apache web server and the client, such as session cookies, must have cookie properties set to prohibit client-side scripts from reading the cookie data - Session on
A cookie can be read by client-side scripts easily if cookie properties are not set properly. By allowing cookies to be read by the client-side scripts, information such as session identifiers could be compromised and used by an attacker who intercepts the cookie. Setting cookie properties (i.e., HttpOnly property) to disallow client-side scripts from reading cookies better protects the information inside the cookie.
Determine the location of the 'HTTPD_ROOT' directory and the 'httpd.conf' file: # httpd -V | egrep -i 'httpd_root|server_config_file' -D HTTPD_ROOT='/etc/httpd' -D SERVER_CONFIG_FILE='conf/httpd.conf' Set 'Session' to 'on'. Ensure the 'SessionCookieName' directive includes 'httpOnly' and 'secure'.
