Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2014:137
http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : apache-mod_wsgi
Date : July 11, 2014
Affected: Business Server 1.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Multiple vulnerabilities has been discovered and corrected in
apache-mod_wsgi:

It was found that mod_wsgi did not properly drop privileges if
the call to setuid\(\) failed. If mod_wsgi was set up to allow
unprivileged users to run WSGI applications, a local user able to
run a WSGI application could possibly use this flaw to escalate their
privileges on the system (CVE-2014-0240).

It was discovered that mod_wsgi could leak memory of a hosted web
application via the Content-Type header. A remote attacker could
possibly use this flaw to disclose limited portions of the web
application's memory (CVE-2014-0242).

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
