Description

A flaw was found in the mod_proxy module. On sites where a reverse proxy is configured, a remote attacker could send a carefully crafted request that would cause the Apache child process handling that request to crash. On sites where a forward proxy is configured, an attacker could cause a similar crash if a user could be persuaded to visit a malicious site using the proxy. This could lead to a denial of service if using a threaded Multi-Processing Module. (CVE-2007-3847)

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_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_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)
