Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2004-058: mod_python

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the mod_python packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated mod_python packages that fix a denial of service vulnerability are
now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

mod_python embeds the Python language interpreter within the Apache httpd
server.

A bug has been found in mod_python versions 2.7.10 and earlier that can
lead to a denial of service vulnerability. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2003-0973 to
this issue.

Although Red Hat Enterprise Linux shipped with a version of mod_python that
contains this bug, our testing was unable to trigger the denial of service
vulnerability. However, mod_python users are advised to upgrade to these
errata packages, which contain a backported patch that corrects this bug.
