(HP Issues Fix for HP-UX) Apache Input Validation Hole in mod_status Permits Cross-Site Scripting Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1019396
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1019396
CVE Reference:   CVE-2007-6388   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Feb 13 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:   HP has issued the following fixes for HP-UX, available at:
