Comment 1 Mark J. Cox 2008-01-02 12:57:28 UTC
according to http://marc.info/?l=apache-cvs&m=119927040920697&w=2

  *) SECURITY: CVE-2007-6421 (cve.mitre.org)
     mod_proxy_balancer: Correctly escape the worker route and the worker
     redirect string in the HTML output of the balancer manager.
     Reported by SecurityReason. [Ruediger Pluem]

This issue only affects mod_proxy_balancer and therefore only httpd-2.2
(Enterprise Linux 5, Application Stack v2 only).  This is of low security
severity as the balancer is not enabled by default, and would be protected to
only allow access by the administrator.
