Bug Description

TRACE and TRACK methods are generally used to get debugging information from httpd. These methods can be used to attack other clients using an attack called Cross-Site Tracing (XST) [1].

We should disable these methods from our apache configurations.


Seems that TraceEnable was already disabled in a commit, and was backported to queens

This was already disabled and is actually not an issue. We were looking at a previous version (before queens).

Changed in tripleo:
status: Triaged → Invalid
