Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA689] DSA-689-1 libapache-mod-python

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-689-1 libapache-mod-python

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Graham Dumpleton discovered a flaw which can affect anyone using the
publisher handle of the Apache Software Foundation's mod_python. The
publisher handle lets you publish objects inside modules to make them
callable via URL. The flaw permits a carefully crafted URL to obtain
extra information that should not be visible (information leak).
For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.7.8-0.0woody5.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.7.10-4 of libapache-mod-python and in version 3.1.3-3 of
libapache2-mod-python.
We recommend that you upgrade your libapache-mod-python package.
