A number of vulnerabilities were found and fixed in the Apache 2.2.x
A flaw found in the mod_imagemap module could lead to a cross-site
scripting attack on sites where mod_imagemap was enabled and an
imagemap file was publically available (CVE-2007-5000).
A flaw found in the mod_status module could lead to a cross-site
scripting attack on sites where mod_status was enabled and the status
pages were publically available (CVE-2007-6388).
A flaw found in the mod_proxy_balancer module could lead to a
cross-site scripting attack against an authorized user on sites where
mod_proxy_balancer was enabled (CVE-2007-6421).
Another flaw in the mod_proxy_balancer module was found where, on
sites with the module enabled, an authorized user could send a
carefully crafted request that would cause the apache child process
handling the request to crash, which could lead to a denial of service
if using a threaded MPM (CVE-2007-6422).
A flaw found in the mod_proxy_ftp module could lead to a cross-site
scripting attack against web browsers which do not correctly derive
the response character set following the rules in RFC 2616, on sites
where the mod_proxy_ftp module was enabled (CVE-2008-0005).
The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
Update the affected packages.
