Apache < 2.2.10 Multiple Vulnerabilities
Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 4712
SynopsisThe remote web server is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.
DescriptionVersions of Apache HTTP Server earlier than 2.2.10 are potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities :
- An information disclosure vulnerability in mod_proxy_http. Note that this only affects Apache on Unix systems. (CVE-2010-2791)
- The mod_proxy_ftp module in the version of Apache installed on the remote host fails to properly sanitize user-supplied URL input before using it to generate dynamic HTML output. Using specially crafted requests for FTP URLs with globbing characters (such as asterisk, tilde, opening square bracket, etc.), an attacker may be able to leverage this issue to inject arbitrary HTML and script code into a user's browser to be executed within the security context of the affected site. (CVE-2008-2939)
SolutionEither disable the affected module or upgrade to version 2.2.10 or higher.
