Description

PerlRun.pm in Apache mod_perl 1.30 and earlier, and RegistryCooker.pm in mod_perl 2.x, does not properly escape PATH_INFO before use in a regular expression, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (resource consumption) via a crafted URI.

Updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
