Debian Security Advisory DSA 689-1                                        Martin Schulze

Package        : libapache-mod-python
Vulnerability  : missing input sanisiting
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2005-0088

Graham Dumpleton discovered a flaw which can affect anyone using the
publisher handle of the Apache Software Foundation's mod_python.  The
publisher handle lets you publish objects inside modules to make them
callable via URL.  The flaw allows a carefully crafted URL to obtain
extra information that should not be visible (information leak).

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.7.8-0.0woody5.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.7.10-4 of libapache-mod-python and in version 3.1.3-3 of

We recommend that you upgrade your libapache-mod-python package.

Upgrade Instructions
