CVE-2017-12309
CWE-113


Summary

  * A vulnerability in the Cisco Email Security Appliance (ESA) and Content
    Security Management Appliance (SMA) software could allow an
    unauthenticated, remote attacker to conduct a HTTP response splitting
    attack.

    The vulnerability is due to the failure of the application or its
    environment to properly sanitize input values. An attacker could exploit
    this vulnerability by injecting malicious HTTP headers, controlling the
    response body, or splitting the response into multiple responses. An
    exploit could allow the attacker to perform cross-site scripting attacks,
    cross-user defacement, web cache poisoning, and similar exploits.

    There are no workarounds that address this vulnerability.
