Vulnerability Details : CVE-2007-4465

Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in mod_autoindex.c in the Apache HTTP Server before 2.2.6, when the charset on a server-generated page is not defined, allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via the P parameter using the UTF-7 charset. NOTE: it could be argued that this issue is due to a design limitation of browsers that attempt to perform automatic content type detection.

- CVSS Scores & Vulnerability Types

CVSS Score
4.3
Confidentiality Impact None (There is no impact to the confidentiality of the system.)
Integrity Impact Partial (Modification of some system files or information is possible, but the attacker does not have control over what can be modified, or the scope of what the attacker can affect is limited.)
Availability Impact None (There is no impact to the availability of the system.)
Access Complexity Medium (The access conditions are somewhat specialized. Some preconditions must be satistified to exploit)
Authentication Not required (Authentication is not required to exploit the vulnerability.)
Gained Access None
Vulnerability Type(s) Cross Site Scripting
CWE ID 79

- Vendor Statements

The Apache security team believe that this issue is due to web browsers that are violating RFC2616. However, Apache 2.2.6 and 2.0.61 add a workaround for such browsers by adding Type and Charset options to IndexOptions directive. This allows a site administrator to explicitly set the content-type and charset of the generated directory index page.
Source: Apache
This is actually a flaw in browsers that do not derive the response character set as required by RFC 2616. This does not affect the default configuration of Apache httpd in Red Hat products and will only affect customers who have removed the "AddDefaultCharset" directive and are using directory indexes. The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this issue as having low security impact, a future update may address this flaw. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=CVE-2007-4465
