A vulnerability has been reported in Apache mod_perl, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks.
Certain input passed to the "Apache::Status" and "Apache2::Status" modules 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 website.
Successful exploitation requires that the "Apache::Status" or "Apache2::Status" modules are enabled.
Solution: Fixed in the SVN repository.
