FreeBSD : mod_perl -- remote DoS in PATH_INFO parsing (ef2ffb03-f2b0-11db-ad25-0010b5a0a860)

Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related
updates.

Description :

Mandriva reports :

PerlRun.pm in Apache mod_perl 1.29 and earlier, and RegistryCooker.pm
in mod_perl 2.x, does not properly escape PATH_INFO before use in a
regular expression, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (resource consumption) via a crafted URI.
