Apache 1.3.x < 1.3.41 Multiple Vulnerabilities (DoS, XSS)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 31408


The remote web server may be affected by several issues.


According to its banner, the version of Apache 1.3.x running on the remote host is prior to 1.3.41. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A denial of service issue in mod_proxy when parsing date-related headers. (CVE-2007-3847)

- A cross-site scripting issue involving mod_imap.

- 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 1.3.41 or later. Alternatively, ensure that the affected modules are not in use.
