|Bugzilla:||471009: CVE-2007-6420 mod_proxy_balancer CSRF|
The MITRE CVE dictionary describes this issue as:
Cross-site request forgery (CSRF) vulnerability in the balancer-manager in mod_proxy_balancer for Apache HTTP Server 2.2.x allows remote attackers to gain privileges via unspecified vectors.
mod_proxy_balancer is shipped in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and Red Hat Application Stack v2. We do not plan on correcting this issue as it poses a very low security risk: The balancer manager is not enabled by default, the user targeted by the CSRF would need to be authenticated, and the consequences of an exploit would be limited to a web server denial of service.
