Apache HTTP Server mod_proxy Cross-Site Scripting Vulnerability
A vulnerability in the mod_proxy module of the Apache HTTP Server could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to conduct a cross-site scripting (XSS) attack on a targeted system.
The vulnerability exists in the mod_proxy module error page of the affected software and is due to insufficient validation of user-supplied input. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by persuading a user to access a link that submits malicious input to the targeted system. A successful exploit could allow the attacker to execute arbitrary script code or access sensitive information on the targeted system.
Apache has confirmed the vulnerability and released software updates.
