Fedora Update Notification

2005-02-10
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Product : Fedora Core 2
Name : mod_python
Version : 3.1.3

Release : 1.fc2.2

Summary : An embedded Python interpreter for the Apache Web server.
Description :
Mod_python is a module that embeds the Python language interpreter within the server, allowing Apache handlers to be written in Python.

Mod_python brings together the versatility of Python and the power of the Apache Web server for a considerable boost in flexibility and performance over the traditional CGI approach.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

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 CAN-2005-0088 to this issue.

This update includes a patch which fixes this issue.
