Synopsis

The remote SuSE 10 host is missing a security-related patch.

Description

Apache2 mod_python has been changed to enable randomized hashes to help fixing denial of service problems by injecting prepared values into Python hash functions. (CVE-2012-1150)

As some Python scripts might need a known hashing order, the old behaviour can be restored using a newly introduced module option called

PythonRandomizeHashes

The option is default on, but can be disabled if necessary for compatibility with above scripts.

Solution

Apply ZYPP patch number 8127.
