Package        : apache
Vulnerability  : insecure tempfile bug, broken mod_rewrite
Debian-specific: no

WireX have found some occurrences of insecure opening of temporary
files in htdigest and htpasswd.  Both programs are not installed
setuid or setgid and thus the impact should be minimal.  The Apache
group has released another security bugfix which fixes a vulnerability
in mod_rewrite which may result the remote attacker to access
arbitrary files on the web server.

We recommend you upgrade your Apache packages.

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

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