[SECURITY] Fedora Core 6 Update: mod_perl-2.0.2-6.2.fc6

Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 6
Name        : mod_perl
Version     : 2.0.2
Release     : 6.2.fc6
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)
