(Red Hat Issues Fix for Red Hat Network Proxy Server) Apache Input Validation Hole in mod_status Permits Cross-Site Scripting Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1020386
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1020386
CVE Reference:   CVE-2007-6388   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Jun 30 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): 4.2
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in Apache mod_status. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks. Red Hat Network Proxy Server is affected.

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 for Red Hat Network Proxy Server, which is affected by this vulnerability.

The Red Hat advisory is available at:

https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2008-0523.html

Cause:   Input validation error
Underlying OS:  Linux (Red Hat Enterprise)
