Apache < 2.0.63 Multiple XSS Vulnerabilities

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 31407


The remote web server is affected by multiple cross-site scripting vulnerabilities.


According to its banner, the version of Apache 2.0.x running on the remote host is prior to 2.0.63. It is, therefore, affected by multiple cross-site scripting vulnerabilities :

- A cross-site scripting issue involving mod_imap.

- A cross-site scripting issue involving 413 error pages via a malformed HTTP method. (PR 44014 / CVE-2007-6203)

- A cross-site scripting issue in mod_status involving the refresh parameter. (CVE-2007-6388)

- A cross-site scripting issue using UTF-7 encoding in mod_proxy_ftp exists because it does not define a charset. (CVE-2008-0005)

Note that the remote web server may not actually be affected by these vulnerabilities. Nessus did not try to determine whether the affected modules are in use or to check for the issues themselves.


Upgrade to Apache version 2.0.63 or later. Alternatively, ensure that he affected modules are not in use.
