medium Nessus Plugin ID 69752
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.

Description

Cross-site scripting (XSS) flaws were found in the mod_proxy_balancer module's manager web interface. If a remote attacker could trick a user, who was logged into the manager web interface, into visiting a specially crafted URL, it would lead to arbitrary web script execution in the context of the user's manager interface session.
(CVE-2012-4558)

It was found that mod_rewrite did not filter terminal escape sequences from its log file. If mod_rewrite was configured with the RewriteLog directive, a remote attacker could use specially crafted HTTP requests to inject terminal escape sequences into the mod_rewrite log file. If a victim viewed the log file with a terminal emulator, it could result in arbitrary command execution with the privileges of that user.
(CVE-2013-1862)

Cross-site scripting (XSS) flaws were found in the mod_info, mod_status, mod_imagemap, mod_ldap, and mod_proxy_ftp modules. An attacker could possibly use these flaws to perform XSS attacks if they were able to make the victim's browser generate an HTTP request with a specially crafted Host header. (CVE-2012-3499)

Solution

Run 'yum update httpd24' to update your system.
