    Package        : apache
    Vulnerability  : insecure tempfile bug, broken mod_rewrite
    Debian-specific: no
    WireX have found some occurrences of insecure opening of temporary
    files in htdigest and htpasswd.  Both programs are not installed
    setuid or setgid and thus the impact should be minimal.  The Apache
    group has released another security bugfix which fixes a vulnerability
    in mod_rewrite which may result the remote attacker to access
    arbitrary files on the web server.
    We recommend you upgrade your Apache packages.
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.
