Debian Security Advisory DSA 1000-2 security@debian.org http://www.debian.org/security/ Martin Schulze April 3rd, 2006 http://www.debian.org/security/faq


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.
