Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2007:0395

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2007:0395.

Mod_perl incorporates a Perl interpreter into the Apache web server,
so that the Apache web server can directly execute Perl code.

An issue was found in the namespace_from_uri method of the
ModPerl::RegistryCooker class. If a server implemented a mod_perl registry
module using this method, a remote attacker requesting a carefully crafted
URI can cause resource consumption, which could lead to a denial of service

Users of mod_perl should update to these erratum packages which contain a
backported fix to correct this issue.

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

Risk factor : Medium
