Description

We have received a report from Dag-Erling Coidan Smørgrav who says that the apache as distributed with Debian GNU/Linux 2.0 is vulnerable to a denial of services exploit, where repeated, identical headers can consume O(n^2) memory.

We recommend you upgrade your apache package immediately.

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

Debian GNU/Linux 2.0 alias hamm
