CVE-2016-5386

Priority
Description
The net/http package in Go through 1.6 does not attempt to address RFC 3875
section 4.1.18 namespace conflicts and therefore does not protect CGI
applications from the presence of untrusted client data in the HTTP_PROXY
environment variable, which might allow remote attackers to redirect a CGI
application's outbound HTTP traffic to an arbitrary proxy server via a
crafted Proxy header in an HTTP request, aka an "httpoxy" issue.
