    Package        : apache-perl
    Problem type   : remote DoS / exploit
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE name       : CAN-2002-0392
    CERT advisory  : VU#944335
    
    Mark Litchfield found a denial of service attack in the Apache
    web-server. While investigating the problem the Apache Software
    Foundation discovered that the code for handling invalid requests which
    use chunked encoding also might allow arbitrary code execution.
    
    This has been fixed in version 1.3.9-14.1-1.21.20000309-1 of the Debian
    apache-perl package and we recommand that you upgrade your apache-perl
    package immediately.
    
    An update for the soon to be released Debian GNU/Linux 3.0/woody
    distribution will be available soon.
    
    Debian 2.2 (stable)
