Subject: CVE Request: XSS and response-splitting bugs in rabbitmq management


The following issues were fixed in RabbitMQ 3.4.1:

(as described in!topic/rabbitmq-users/-3Z2FyGtXhs )

26437 prevent /api/* from returning text/html error messages which could
       act as an XSS vector (since 2.1.0)
26433 fix response-splitting vulnerability in /api/downloads
       (since 2.1.0)

Bug 26437 allowed an attacker to create a URL to "/api/..." which would
provoke an internal server error, resulting in the server returning an
html page with text from the URL embedded and not escaped. This was
fixed by ensuring all URLs below /api/ only ever return responses with a
content type of application/json, even in the case of an internal server

Bug 26433 allowed an attacker to specify a URL to /api/definitions which
would cause an arbitrary additional header to be returned. This was
fixed by stripping out CR/LF from the "download" query string parameter.
