Synopsis
========

The mod_perl Apache module is vulnerable to a Denial of Service when
processing regular expressions.

Background
==========

Mod_perl is an Apache module that embeds the Perl interpreter within
the server, allowing Perl-based web-applications to be created.

Affected packages
=================

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package              /  Vulnerable  /                  Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  www-apache/mod_perl       < 1.30                          >= 1.30
                                                           >= 2.0.3-r1
     www-apache/mod_perl     < 2.0.3-r1                        >= 1.30
                                                           >= 2.0.3-r1

Description
===========

Alex Solvey discovered that the "path_info" variable used in file
RegistryCooker.pm (mod_perl 2.x) or file PerlRun.pm (mod_perl 1.x), is
not properly escaped before being processed.

Impact
======

A remote attacker could send a specially crafted URL to the vulnerable
server, possibly resulting in a massive resource consumption.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All mod_perl 1.x users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apache/mod_perl-1.30"

All mod_perl 2.x users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apache/mod_perl-2.0.3-r1"
