Description Jan Lieskovsky 2011-02-24 10:46:51 UTC
An information disclosure flaw was found in the way Python
CGI-savvy HTTP Server module processed HTTP GET requests
with relative path in the URI (relevant CGI scripts were
not executed, but rather their content displayed). A remote
attacker could use this flaw to obtain sensitive information.

Upstream bug report:

Comment 2 Jan Lieskovsky 2011-02-24 10:51:08 UTC
Created python tracking bugs for this issue

Affects: fedora-13 [bug 680095]

Comment 3 Jan Lieskovsky 2011-02-24 10:53:21 UTC
This issue affects the versions of the python package, as shipped
with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4, 5, and 6.

--

This issue affects the version of the python package, as shipped
with Fedora release of 13.

This issue does NOT affect the version of the python package, as
shipped with Fedora release of 14 (particular version already contains
the fix for this issue).

Comment 4 Jan Lieskovsky 2011-02-24 10:55:18 UTC
Note related to backporting of particular upstream patch:
(from http://bugs.python.org/issue2254#msg85614):
=================================================

Fixed in trunk r71303.

This potentially changes the behavior of CGIHTTPServer (for the better)
so this is probably not appropriate to backport to a release branch
unless someone really considers the security of this to be severe.

If backported, the new module function should be expanded inline to
avoid adding a new (though undocumented) API.

Closing.

Comment 9 Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2011-04-05 06:23:08 UTC
Regarding comment #4, this is only a demo class shipped with python, and we are fixing this, because there are other security issues to be fixed, so i dont see any issues even if the API changes slightly,

@David,
do you agree with this?
