Apache HTTP Server 2.0.x and 2.2.x does not sanitize the HTTP Method
specifier header from an HTTP request when it is reflected back in a
"413 Request Entity Too Large" error message, which might allow
cross-site scripting (XSS) style attacks using web client components
that can send arbitrary headers in requests, as demonstrated via an
HTTP request containing an invalid Content-length value, a similar
issue to CVE-2006-3918.
