Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.51342
Category:Conectiva Local Security Checks
Title:Conectiva Security Advisory CLA-2004:837
Summary:Conectiva Security Advisory CLA-2004:837
Description:
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory CLA-2004:837.

The package mod_python provides an Apache module that embeds the
Python interpreter within the server.

This update fixes a remote denial of service vulnerabiliy[1] in
Apache web-servers which have mod_python enabled (this is not the
default in Conectiva Linux). An attacker can crash an apache child
process by sending a specially crafted message that triggers the bug
in mod_python.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
assigned the name CVE-2003-0973 to this issue[2].


Solution:
The apt tool can be used to perform RPM package upgrades
by running 'apt-get update' followed by 'apt-get upgrade'
