Product : Fedora Core 3
Name : mod_python
Version : 3.1.3
Release : 5.2
Summary : An embedded Python interpreter for the Apache Web server.
Mod_python is a module that embeds the Python language interpreter within
the server, allowing Apache handlers to be written in Python.
Mod_python brings together the versatility of Python and the power of
the Apache Web server for a considerable boost in flexibility and
performance over the traditional CGI approach.
Graham Dumpleton discovered a flaw affecting the publisher handler of
mod_python, used to make objects inside modules callable via URL.
A remote user could visit a carefully crafted URL that would gain access to
objects that should not be visible, leading to an information leak. The
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned
the name CAN-2005-0088 to this issue.
This update includes a patch which fixes this issue.
