[SECURITY] Fedora 7 Update: mod_perl-2.0.3-9.1.fc7

Fedora Update Notification
2007-06-09 12:19:05.825516

Name        : mod_perl
Product     : Fedora 7
Version     : 2.0.3
Release     : 9.1.fc7
Summary     : An embedded Perl interpreter for the Apache Web server
Description :
Mod_perl incorporates a Perl interpreter into the Apache web server,
so that the Apache web server can directly execute Perl code.
Mod_perl links the Perl runtime library into the Apache web server and
provides an object-oriented Perl interface for Apache's C language
API.  The end result is a quicker CGI script turnaround process, since
no external Perl interpreter has to be started.

Install mod_perl if you're installing the Apache web server and you'd
like for it to directly incorporate a Perl interpreter.

Update Information:

This update fixes a security issue in mod_perl.

An issue was found in the "namespace_from_uri" method of the ModPerl::RegistryCooker class.
If a server implemented a mod_perl registry module using this method, a remote attacker
requesting a carefully crafted URI can cause resource consumption, which could lead to
a denial of service. (CVE-2007-1349)
