    Several vulnerabilities have been found in the Apache HTTPD server.
    
    CVE-2012-3499
    
        The modules mod_info, mod_status, mod_imagemap, mod_ldap, and
        mod_proxy_ftp did not properly escape hostnames and URIs in
        HTML output, causing cross site scripting vulnerabilities.
    
    CVE-2012-4558
    
        Mod_proxy_balancer did not properly escape hostnames and URIs
        in its balancer-manager interface, causing a cross site scripting
        vulnerability.
    
    CVE-2013-1048
    
        Hayawardh Vijayakumar noticed that the apache2ctl script created
        the lock directory in an unsafe manner, allowing a local attacker
        to gain elevated privileges via a symlink attack. This is a Debian
        specific issue.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.2.16-6+squeeze11.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy), these problems will be fixed in
    version 2.2.22-13.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems will be fixed in
    version 2.2.22-13.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your apache2 packages.
