Description Mark J. Cox 2008-08-07 09:55:36 UTC
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier CVE-2008-2939 to the following vulnerability:

Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in proxy_ftp.c in the mod_proxy_ftp module in Apache 2.0.63 and earlier, and mod_proxy_ftp.c in the mod_proxy_ftp module in Apache 2.2.9 and earlier 2.2 versions, allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via wildcards in a pathname in an FTP URI.

This is low severity as it requires proxying to be enabled, mod_proxy-ftp to be 
enabled to support ftp-over-httpd.
