Fedora Core 6 : mod_perl-2.0.2-6.2.fc6 (2007-577)

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update fixes a security issue in mod_perl.

An issue was found in the 'namespace_from_uri' method of the
ModPerl::RegistryCooker class. If a server implemented a mod_perl
registry module using this method, a remote attacker requesting a
carefully crafted URI can cause resource consumption, which could lead
to a denial of service. (CVE-2007-1349)

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.
