Bug #4286: Renamed vCenter headers to avoid web server dropping


#1 Updated by Javi Fontan over 5 years ago

From Apache Documentation (http://httpd.apache.org/docs/trunk/new_features_2_4.html):

Translation of headers to environment variables is more strict than before to mitigate some possible cross-site-scripting attacks via header injection. Headers containing invalid characters (including underscores) are now silently dropped. Environment Variables in Apache has some pointers on how to work around broken legacy clients which require such headers. (This affects all modules which use these environment variables.)

Configuration workaround in this link:


For 5.0 is better to fix header names.
