Apache Input Validation Hole in Mod_AutoIndex When the Character Set is Undefined May Permit Cross-Site Scripting Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1019194
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1019194
CVE Reference:   CVE-2007-4465   (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  Exploit Included:  Yes  
Version(s): prior to 2.0.61, 2.2.6
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in Apache. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

A remote user can create a specially crafted request that, when loaded by a target user, will 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.

Pages that are server-generated and do not have a character set defined may be affected.

Browsers that do not properly implement RFC2616 may be affected.

The original advisory is available at:
