(Red Hat Issues Fix) Apache Input Validation Hole in mod_status Permits Cross-Site Scripting Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1019216
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1019216
CVE Reference:   CVE-2007-6388   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Jan 16 2008
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): 1.3.2 - 1.3.39, 2.0.35 - 2.0.61
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in Apache mod_status. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

The mod_status module does not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input before displaying the input. A remote user can cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser. The code will originate from the site running the Apache software and will run in the security context of that site. As a result, the code will be able to access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.

Impact:   A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site running the Apache software, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.
Solution:   Red Hat has released a fix.

The Red Hat advisory is available at:

=====================================================================
                   Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis:          Moderate: httpd security update
Advisory ID:       RHSA-2008:0008-01
Product:           Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL:      https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2008-0008.html
Issue date:        2008-01-15
CVE Names:         CVE-2007-4465 CVE-2007-5000 CVE-2007-6388

=====================================================================

1. Summary:

Updated Apache httpd packages that fix several security issues are now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client) - i386, x86_64
RHEL Desktop Workstation (v. 5 client) - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server) - i386, ia64, ppc, s390x, x86_64

3. Description:

The Apache HTTP Server is a popular Web server.

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_autoindex module. On sites where directory
listings are used, and the "AddDefaultCharset" directive has been removed
from the configuration, a cross-site scripting attack might have been
possible against Web browsers which do not correctly derive the response
character set following the rules in RFC 2616. (CVE-2007-4465)

A flaw was found in the mod_status module. On sites where mod_status was
enabled and the status pages were publicly available, 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 Web browsers which do not correctly derive the
response character set following the rules in RFC 2616. (CVE-2008-0005)

Users of Apache httpd should upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain backported patches to resolve these issues. Users should restart
httpd after installing this update.

4. Solution:
