medium Nessus Plugin ID 64108
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote SuSE 11 host is missing a security update.

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 SAT patch number 6247.
