The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
Security Fix(es) :
- It was discovered that httpd used the value of the Proxy
header from HTTP requests to initialize the HTTP_PROXY
environment variable for CGI scripts, which in turn was
incorrectly used by certain HTTP client implementations
to configure the proxy for outgoing HTTP requests. A
remote attacker could possibly use this flaw to redirect
HTTP requests performed by a CGI script to an
attacker-controlled proxy via a malicious HTTP request.
Note: After this update, httpd will no longer pass the value of the
Proxy request header to scripts via the HTTP_PROXY environment
