    Package        : apache
    Vulnerability  : buffer overflows
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2004-0940
    Two vulnerabilities have been identified in the Apache 1.3 webserver:
        "Crazy Einstein" has discovered a vulnerability in the
        "mod_include" module, which can cause a buffer to be overflown and
        could lead to the execution of arbitrary code.
        Larry Cashdollar has discovered a potential buffer overflow in the
        htpasswd utility, which could be exploited when user-supplied is
        passed to the program via a CGI (or PHP, or ePerl, ...) program.
    For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.3.26-0woody6.
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.3.33-2.
    We recommend that you upgrade your apache packages.
