EulerOS 2.0 SP1 : httpd (EulerOS-SA-2016-1030)

This script is Copyright (C) 2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.

Description :

According to the version of the httpd packages installed, the EulerOS
installation on the remote host is affected by the following
vulnerability :

- 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. (CVE-2016-5387)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the EulerOS security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
