Title: mod_python: Publisher Handler vulnerability (GLSA 200502-14)
Date: February 13, 2005
Updated: December 30, 2007
mod_python contains a vulnerability in the Publisher Handler potentially leading to information disclosure.
mod_python is an Apache module that embeds the Python interpreter within the server allowing Python-based web-applications to be created.
Vulnerable: < 3.1.3-r1
Unaffected: >= 3.1.3-r1
Unaffected: >= 2.7.11 < 2.7.12
Architectures: All supported architectures
Graham Dumpleton discovered a vulnerability in mod_python's Publisher Handler.
By requesting a specially crafted URL for a published module page, an attacker could obtain information about restricted variables.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All mod_python users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose www-apache/mod_python
