CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:

Check for the Version of httpd

Affected Versions:
httpd on CentOS 3

Please Install the Updated Packages.

Technical Details:
The Apache HTTP Server is a popular Web server. A flaw was found in the mod_imap module. On sites where mod_imap 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 was possible against Web browsers which did not correctly derive the response character set following the rules in RFC 2616. (CVE-2007-4465) 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_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_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 did 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 Linux Distribution Packages, which contain backported patches to resolve these issues. Users should restart httpd after installing this update.

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
