    Package        : apache2
    Vulnerability  : failure to drop root privileges
    Problem type   : remote

    CVE ID         : CVE-2011-1176 
    Debian Bug     : 618857
    
    MPM_ITK is an alternative Multi-Processing Module for Apache HTTPD that
    is included in Debian's apache2 package.
    
    A configuration parsing flaw has been found in MPM_ITK. If the
    configuration directive NiceValue was set, but no AssignUserID directive
    was specified, the requests would be processed as user and group root
    instead of the default Apache user and group.
    
    This issue does not affect the standard Apache HTTPD MPMs prefork,
    worker, and event.
    
    The oldstable distribution (lenny) is not affected by this problem.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.2.16-6+squeeze1.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy) and the unstable distribution
    (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 2.2.17-2.
    
    If you use apache2-mpm-itk, we recommend that you upgrade your apache2
    packages.
