Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2014:0788 normal SHIPPED_LIVE Important: mod_wsgi security update 2014-06-25 19:40:37 UTC

Description Murray McAllister 2014-05-28 05:55:03 UTC
mod_wsgi allows you to host Python applications on the Apache HTTP Server. It was found that a remote attacker could leak portions of a mod_wsgi application's memory via the Content-Type header.

This issue has been fixed in mod_wsgi version 3.4.
