The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
Alex Solovey discovered that mod_perl did not correctly validate
certain regular expression matches. A remote attacker could send a
specially crafted request to a web application using mod_perl, causing
the web server to monopolize CPU resources. This could lead to a
remote denial of service.

/ or libapache2-mod-perl2-doc packages.
