Fedora Core 5 : mod_perl-2.0.2-5.2.fc5 (2007-576)
High Nessus Plugin ID 25470
SynopsisThe remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThis update fixes a security issue in mod_perl.
An issue was found in the 'namespace_from_uri' method of the ModPerl::RegistryCooker class. If a server implemented a mod_perl registry module using this method, a remote attacker requesting a carefully crafted URI can cause resource consumption, which could lead to a denial of service. (CVE-2007-1349)
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected mod_perl, mod_perl-debuginfo and / or mod_perl-devel packages.
