The reverse proxy feature (mod_proxy) has a new vulnerability. If pattern matching is used, a crafted attack (using invalid inputs - even though this does not involve SQL the "Little Bobby Tables" XKCD comes to mind again, for like the 3rd time this week ! ) can expose information on internal hosts.
