Description Mark J. Cox (Product Security) 2007-06-21 03:51:07 EDT
According to 
http://svn.apache.org/viewvc?view=rev&rev=549159

"mod_status: Fix a possible XSS attack against a site with a public
server-status page and ExtendedStatus enabled, for browsers which perform
charset "detection".  Reported by Stefan Esser.  [Joe Orton]"

Note that the default is not to have a public server-status page, and in itself
making server-status public could leak sensitive information about your site.
