Debian Security Advisory DSA 1000-2                                       Martin Schulze

Package        : libapreq2-perl
Vulnerability  : design error
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2006-0042
BugTraq ID     : 16710
Debian Bug     : 354060 358689

Gunnar Wolf noticed that the correction for the following problem was
not complete and requires an update.  For completeness we're
providing the original problem description:

   An algorithm weakness has been discovered in Apache2::Request, the
   generic request library for Apache2 which can be exploited remotely
   and cause a denial of service via CPU consumption.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain this package.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.04-dev-1sarge2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.07-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libapreq2, libapache2-mod-apreq2
and libapache2-request-perl packages.

Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
