Description


A security issue and a vulnerability have been reported in Apache, which can be exploited by malicious people to disclose potentially sensitive information and conduct cross-site scripting attacks .

1) Input passed to mod_proxy_ftp via an URL containing a FTP wildcard character (e.g. "*"), is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected site.

2) The security issue is caused due to mod_proxy_http not properly handling certain timeout conditions, which can lead to responses being returned to the wrong users.
