HTTP Response Splitting (CRLF)
The CRLF Injection Attack (sometimes also referred to as HTTP Response Splitting) is a fairly simple, yet extremely powerful web attack. Hackers are actively exploiting this web application vulnerability to perform a large variety of attacks that include XSS cross-site scripting, cross-user defacement, positioning of client’s web-cache, hijacking of web pages, defacement and a myriad of other related attacks. A number of years ago a number of CRLF injection vulnerabilities were also discovered in Google’s Adwords web interface.
