High Nessus Plugin ID 18932


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


Mark J Cox reports :

Graham Dumpleton discovered a flaw which can affect anyone using the publisher handle of the Apache Software Foundation mod_python. The publisher handle lets you publish objects inside modules to make them callable via URL. The flaw allows a carefully crafted URL to obtain extra information that should not be visible (information leak).


Update the affected packages.
