Description Sune Kloppenborg Jeppesen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-03-29 14:24:40 UTC
A vulnerability has been reported in mod_perl, which potentially can be exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service).
 The vulnerability is caused due to a regular expression in "" (mod_perl 2.x) or "" (mod_perl 1.x) that uses the "path_info" variable without properly escaping it. This can be exploited to cause a DoS by sending requests with specially crafted URLs to a vulnerable server.

Fixed in the SVN repository.
