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.

Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

This 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.

Solution

Update the affected mod_perl, mod_perl-debuginfo and / or mod_perl-devel packages.
