SuSE 10 Security Update : apache2-mod_python (ZYPP Patch Number 8127)

This script is Copyright (C) 2012 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote SuSE 10 host is missing a security-related patch.

Description :

Apache2 mod_python has been changed to enable randomized hashes to
help fixing denial of service problems by injecting prepared values
into Python hash functions. (CVE-2012-1150)

As some Python scripts might need a known hashing order, the old
behaviour can be restored using a newly introduced module option
called

PythonRandomizeHashes

The option is default on, but can be disabled if necessary for
compatibility with above scripts.
