Fedora 8 : httpd-2.2.8-1.fc8 (2008-1695)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 31103
SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThis update includes the latest release of httpd 2.2, which fixes a number of minor security issues and other bugs. A flaw was found in the mod_imagemap module. On sites where mod_imagemap was enabled and an imagemap file was publicly available, a cross-site scripting attack was possible. (CVE-2007-5000) A flaw was found in the mod_status module. On sites where mod_status was enabled and the status pages were publicly accessible, a cross-site scripting attack was possible.
(CVE-2007-6388) A flaw was found in the mod_proxy_balancer module. On sites where mod_proxy_balancer was enabled, a cross-site scripting attack against an authorized user was possible. (CVE-2007-6421) A flaw was found in the mod_proxy_balancer module. On sites where mod_proxy_balancer was enabled, an authorized user could send a carefully crafted request that would cause the Apache child process handling that request to crash. This could lead to a denial of service if using a threaded Multi-Processing Module. (CVE-2007-6422) A flaw was found in the mod_proxy_ftp module. On sites where mod_proxy_ftp was enabled and a forward proxy was configured, a cross-site scripting attack was possible against browsers which do not correctly derive the response character set following the rules in RFC 2616.
