Reference to Vulnerability Disclosure Policy:
=============================================
http://www.cybsec.com/vulnerability_policy.pdf

Overview:
=========

"N-Stealth is a vulnerability-assessment product that scans web servers
to identify security problems and weaknesses that may allow an attacker
to gain privileged access.The software comes with an extensive database
of over 30,000 vulnerabilities and exploits".

"Nikto is an Open Source (GPL) web server scanner which performs
comprehensive tests against web servers for multiple items, including
over 3200 potentially dangerous files/CGIs, versions on over 625
servers, and version specific problems on over 230 servers".

Vulnerability Description:
==========================

A bug exists in the way multiple web vulnerability scanners process
responses received from the host being scanned.

If the target host has modified the "Server" field of the HTTP Response
headers, including DHTML code in it, this code will be executed by the
browser when the HTML report is generated.

It's important to emphasize that this code will be executed under "My
Computer" Security Zone when viewed with IE.

Proof of Concept (using mod_security):
--------------------------------------

SecServerSignature "Microsoft-IIS/5.0<script>alert('test')</script>"

Besides, in N-Stealth main dialog, the Server header is displayed up to
its 54th character. So, with the correct blank padding after the fake
version banner, the DHTML code won't be noticed in this window.

Solutions:
==========

N-Stealth vendor has released an update that fixes the vulnerability.
Update can be downloaded at http://www.nstalker.com.

Nikto vendor has released an update that warns the user of dangers in
viewing HTML reports.
Update can be downloaded at http://www.cirt.net.
