Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : mod_perl (MDKSA-2000:046)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 61838
SynopsisThe remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThe configuration file, /etc/httpd/conf/addon-modules/mod_perl.conf contained an Options directive that was not entirely secure and allowed people to browse the /perl/ directory. This update adds the '-Indexes' directive to the Options command, thus making the directory non- browseable.
SolutionUpdate the affected mod_perl package.
