New issue 3341 by 'Security Checklist' link gives http 500 due to permission problem

The 'Security checklist' link on the admin page (which links to /admin/security/) in 2.0 RC3 produces an http 500 error because it tries to access media/uploaded/files/exec_check.php, which is disallowed via the section in apache-wsgi.conf:

"Prevent the server from processing or allowing the rendering of certain file types."
