Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.51655
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2005:100
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2005:100.

Mod_python is a module that embeds the Python language interpreter within
the Apache web server, allowing handlers to be written in Python.

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 CVE-2005-0088 to this issue.

Users of mod_python are advised to upgrade to this updated package,
which contains a backported patch to correct this issue.

Solution:
Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
