Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.58137
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-430-1 (libapache2-mod-python)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-430-1 (libapache2-mod-python)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to libapache2-mod-python
announced via advisory USN-430-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 5.10
Ubuntu 6.06 LTS

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

Miles Egan discovered that mod_python, when used in output filter mode,
did not handle output larger than 16384 bytes, and would display freed
memory, possibly disclosing private data. Thanks to Jim Garrison of the
Software Freedom Law Center for identifying the original bug as a
security vulnerability.

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 5.10:
libapache2-mod-python 3.1.3-3ubuntu1.1

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
libapache2-mod-python 3.1.4-0ubuntu1.1

After a standard system upgrade you need to restart Apache to effect the
necessary changes.
