Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : apache-mod_perl (MDKSA-2007:083)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 25034


The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description in Apache mod_perl 1.30 and earlier, and in mod_perl 2.x, does not properly escape PATH_INFO before use in a regular expression, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (resource consumption) via a crafted URI.

Updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.


Update the affected apache-mod_perl and / or apache-mod_perl-devel packages.
