Apache protocol.c Cookie Disclosure

Apache protocol.c Cookie Disclosure
Posted Jan 31, 2012
Authored by pilate

Proof of concept code for a vulnerability in protocol.c from Apache versions 2.2.x through 2.2.21. The issue is that it does not properly restrict header information during construction of Bad Request (aka 400) error documents, which allows remote attackers to obtain the values of HTTPOnly cookies.
