Ubuntu 4.10 : libapache2-mod-python vulnerabilities (USN-80-1)

High Nessus Plugin ID 20704


The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.


Graham Dumpleton discovered an information disclosure in the 'publisher' handle of mod_python. By requesting a carefully crafted URL for a published module page, anybody can obtain extra information about internal variables, objects, and other information which is not intended to be visible.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected packages.
