Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

Graham Dumpleton discovered a flaw affecting the publisher handler of
mod_python, used to make objects inside modules callable via URL. A
remote user could visit a carefully crafted URL that would gain access
to objects that should not be visible, leading to an information leak.
The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
assigned the name CVE-2005-0088 to this issue.

This update includes a patch which fixes this issue.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
