SocialEngine PHPSESSID HTTP response splitting
|socialengine-phpsessid-response-splitting (46771)||Medium Risk|
SocialEngine is vulnerable to HTTP response splitting attacks, caused by improper validation of input. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability and modify HTTP headers using the PHPSESSID cookie parameter in a specially-crafted URL to cause the server to return a split response, once the URL is clicked. This would allow the attacker to perform further attacks, such as Web cache poisoning or cross-site scripting, and possibly obtain sensitive information.
No remedy available as of September 1, 2014.
