Apache Traffic Server 6.x < 6.2.2 / 7.x < 7.1.2 Host Header and Line Folding Vulnerability

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 107227


The remote caching server is affected by an input-validation vulnerability.


According to its banner, the version of Apache Traffic Server running on the remote host is 6.x prior to 6.2.2 or 7.x prior to 7.1.2. It is, therefore, affected by an input-validation vulnerability related to handling 'Host' headers and line folding that allows a remote attacker to cause the wrong host to be used.

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Upgrade to Apache Traffic Server version 6.2.2, 7.1.2 or later.
