New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

SynopsisThe remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionPerlRun.pm in Apache mod_perl 1.30 and earlier, and RegistryCooker.pm 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.
SolutionUpdate the affected apache-mod_perl and / or apache-mod_perl-devel packages.
