Scientific Linux Security Update : mod_perl on SL5.x, SL4.x, SL3.x i386/x86_64

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 60211


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


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).


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