    CVE ID         : CVE-2016-0736 CVE-2016-2161 CVE-2016-8743
    
    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in the Apache2 HTTP server.
    
    CVE-2016-0736
    
      RedTeam Pentesting GmbH discovered that mod_session_crypto was
      vulnerable to padding oracle attacks, which could allow an attacker
      to guess the session cookie.
    
    CVE-2016-2161
    
      Maksim Malyutin discovered that malicious input to mod_auth_digest
      could cause the server to crash, causing a denial of service.
    
    CVE-2016-8743
    
      David Dennerline, of IBM Security's X-Force Researchers, and Régis
      Leroy discovered problems in the way Apache handled a broad pattern
      of unusual whitespace patterns in HTTP requests. In some
      configurations, this could lead to response splitting or cache
      pollution vulnerabilities.  To fix these issues, this update makes
      Apache httpd be more strict in what HTTP requests it accepts.
    
      If this causes problems with non-conforming clients, some checks can
      be relaxed by adding the new directive "HttpProtocolOptions unsafe"
      to the configuration.
    
    This update also fixes the issue where mod_reqtimeout was not enabled
    by default on new installations.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.4.10-10+deb8u8.
    
    For the testing (stretch) and unstable (sid) distributions, these
    problems have been fixed in version 2.4.25-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your apache2 packages.
