3. Description:

 

The Apache HTTP Server is a popular web server.

 

Cross-site scripting (XSS) flaws were found in the mod_proxy_balancer

module's manager web interface. If a remote attacker could trick a user,

who was logged into the manager web interface, into visiting a

specially-crafted URL, it would lead to arbitrary web script execution in

the context of the user's manager interface session. (CVE-2012-4558)

 

It was found that mod_rewrite did not filter terminal escape sequences from

its log file. If mod_rewrite was configured with the RewriteLog directive,

a remote attacker could use specially-crafted HTTP requests to inject

terminal escape sequences into the mod_rewrite log file. If a victim viewed

the log file with a terminal emulator, it could result in arbitrary command

execution with the privileges of that user. (CVE-2013-1862)

 

Cross-site scripting (XSS) flaws were found in the mod_info, mod_status,

mod_imagemap, mod_ldap, and mod_proxy_ftp modules. An attacker could

possibly use these flaws to perform XSS attacks if they were able to make

the victim's browser generate an HTTP request with a specially-crafted Host

header. (CVE-2012-3499)

 

All httpd users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain

backported patches to correct these issues. After installing the updated

packages, the httpd daemon will be restarted automatically.

 

4. Solution:

 

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata

relevant to your system have been applied.

 

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to

use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
