    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
    libapache2-mod-python.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libapache-mod-python package.
