    Package : libapache-mod-python
    Vulnerability : denial of service
    Problem-Type : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Id : CAN-2003-0973
    Debian bug : 222828

    The Apache Software Foundation announced that some versions of
    mod_python contain a bug which, when processing a request with a
    malformed query string, could cause the corresponding Apache child to
    crash. This bug could be exploited by a remote attacker to cause a
    denial of service.

    For the current stable distribution (woody) this problem has been
    fixed in version 2:2.7.8-0.0woody2.

    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2:2.7.10-1.

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

    Upgrade Instructions
