Issue Overview:

mod_perl allows attackers to execute arbitrary Perl code by placing it in a user-owned .htaccess file, because (contrary to the documentation) there is no configuration option that permits Perl code for the administrator's control of HTTP request processing without also permitting unprivileged users to run Perl code in the context of the user account that runs Apache HTTP Server processes.(CVE-2011-2767 )


Affected Packages:

mod_perl,mod24_perl


Issue Correction:
Run yum update mod_perl to update your system if you are running httpd (2.2).
Run yum update mod24_perl to update your system if you are running httpd24 (2.4).
