    Qualys Vulnerability & Malware Research Labs discovered a vulnerability in
    ModSecurity, a security module for the Apache webserver. In situations where
    both 'Content:Disposition: attachment' and 'Content-Type: multipart' were
    present in HTTP headers, the vulernability could allow an attacker to bypass
    policy and execute cross-site script (XSS) attacks through properly crafted
    HTML documents.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.5.12-1+squeeze1.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.6.6-1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.6.6-1.
    
    In testing and unstable distribution, the source package has been renamed to
    modsecurity-apache.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libapache-mod-security packages.
