Vulnerability Scan Summary
DSA-1000-2 libapreq2-perl

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

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.
