Red Hat Security Advisory 2012-0037-01 - mod_cluster-native provides a native build of mod_cluster for the Apache HTTP Server. mod_cluster is an httpd-based load balancer. Like mod_jk, it uses a communication channel to forward requests from httpd to an application server node. It was found that mod_cluster allowed worker nodes to register on any virtual host, regardless of the security constraints applied to other vhosts. In a typical environment, there will be one vhost configured internally for worker nodes, and another configured externally for serving content. A remote attacker could use this flaw to register an attacker-controlled worker node via an external vhost that is not configured to apply security constraints, then use that worker node to serve malicious content, intercept credentials, and hijack user sessions.

3. Description:

mod_cluster-native provides a native build of mod_cluster for the Apache
HTTP Server (httpd). mod_cluster is an httpd-based load balancer. Like
mod_jk, it uses a communication channel to forward requests from httpd to
an application server node.

It was found that mod_cluster allowed worker nodes to register on any
virtual host (vhost), regardless of the security constraints applied to
other vhosts. In a typical environment, there will be one vhost configured
internally for worker nodes, and another configured externally for serving
content. A remote attacker could use this flaw to register an
attacker-controlled worker node via an external vhost that is not
configured to apply security constraints, then use that worker node to
serve malicious content, intercept credentials, and hijack user sessions.
(CVE-2011-4608)

Users of mod_cluster-native should upgrade to this updated package, which
contains a backported patch to resolve this issue. Refer to the Solution
section for installation instructions.
