SuSE 11.1 Security Update : apache2-mod_python (SAT Patch Number 6247)

Description

Apache2 mod_python has been changed to enable randomized hashes to help fixing denial of service problems by injecting prepared values into Python hash functions. (CVE-2012-1150) As some Python scripts might need a known hashing order, the old behaviour can be restored using a newly introduced module option called PythonRandomizeHashes The option is default on, but can be disabled if necessary for compatibility with above scripts.
