    Vulnerability  : backward compatibility option for SSL/TLS insecure
                     renegotiation
    Problem type   : remote

    Debian Bug     : 587037
    
    DSA-2141-1 changed the behaviour of the openssl libraries in a server
    environment to only allow SSL/TLS renegotiation for clients that
    support the RFC5746 renegotiation extension. This update to apache2
    adds the new SSLInsecureRenegotiation configuration option that allows
    to restore support for insecure clients. More information can be found
    in the file /usr/share/doc/apache2.2-common/NEWS.Debian.gz .
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), the compatibility option has been
    included in version 2.2.9-10+lenny9.
    
    In addition, apache2-mpm-itk has been rebuilt to work with the updated
    apache2 packages. The new version number is 2.2.6-02-1+lenny4.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), and the testing distribution
    (squeeze), the compatibility option has been included since version
    2.2.15-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your apache2 and apache2-mpm-itk
    packages.
