SuSE 11.1 Security Update : apache2-mod_python (SAT Patch Number 6247)

This script is Copyright (C) 2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote SuSE 11 host is missing a security update.

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.
