ID CVE-2016-10711
Summary Apsis Pound before 2.8a allows request smuggling via crafted headers, a different vulnerability than CVE-2005-3751.
Vulnerable Configurations
  • Debian Linux 7.0
  • cpe:2.3:a:apsis:pound:2.7
Base: 7.5
  • HTTP Request Splitting
    HTTP Request Splitting (also known as HTTP Request Smuggling) is an attack pattern where an attacker attempts to insert additional HTTP requests in the body of the original (enveloping) HTTP request in such a way that the browser interprets it as one request but the web server interprets it as two. There are several ways to perform HTTP request splitting attacks. One way is to include double Content-Length headers in the request to exploit the fact that the devices parsing the request may each use a different header. Another way is to submit an HTTP request with a "Transfer Encoding: chunked" in the request header set with setRequestHeader to allow a payload in the HTTP Request that can be considered as another HTTP Request by a subsequent parsing entity. A third way is to use the "Double CR in an HTTP header" technique. There are also a few less general techniques targeting specific parsing vulnerabilities in certain web servers.
  • HTTP Request Smuggling
    HTTP Request Smuggling results from the discrepancies in parsing HTTP requests between HTTP entities such as web caching proxies or application firewalls. Entities such as web servers, web caching proxies, application firewalls or simple proxies often parse HTTP requests in slightly different ways. Under specific situations where there are two or more such entities in the path of the HTTP request, a specially crafted request is seen by two attacked entities as two different sets of requests. This allows certain requests to be smuggled through to a second entity without the first one realizing it.

    title openSUSE Security Update : pound (openSUSE-2018-143)
  • NASL family Debian Local Security Checks
    description A request smuggling vulnerability was discovered in pound that may allow attackers to send a specially crafted http request to a web server or reverse proxy while pound may see a different set of requests. This facilitates several possible exploitations, such as partial cache poisoning, bypassing firewall protection and XSS. For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 2.6-2+deb7u2. We recommend that you upgrade your pound packages. NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
