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.

objects that should not be visible, leading to an information leak. The
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project ( has assigned
the name CAN-2005-0088 to this issue.

This update includes a patch which fixes this issue.
