Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.59176
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-488-1 (libapache2-mod-perl2)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-488-1 (libapache2-mod-perl2)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to libapache2-mod-perl2
announced via advisory USN-488-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS
Ubuntu 6.10
Ubuntu 7.04

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

Details follow:

Alex Solovey discovered that mod_perl did not correctly validate certain
regular expression matches. A remote attacker could send a specially
crafted request to a web application using mod_perl, causing the web
server to monopolize CPU resources. This could lead to a remote denial
of service.

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

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
libapache2-mod-perl2 2.0.2-2ubuntu1.6.06.1

Ubuntu 6.10:
libapache2-mod-perl2 2.0.2-2ubuntu1.6.10.1

Ubuntu 7.04:
libapache2-mod-perl2 2.0.2-2.3ubuntu1

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.
