Detail

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.
