CVE-ID: CVE-2016-10003

CWE-ID: CWE-200 - Information Exposure

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to obtain potentially sensitive information.

The vulnerability exists due to incorrect comparison of request headers when Collapsed Forwarding feature is configured. A remote attacker can obtain private and sensitive information about another clients browsing session, including user's credentials.

Successful exploitation of the vulnerability may allow an attacker to obtain potentially sensitive information.

Mitigation

Update to version 3.5.23 or 4.0.17.
