    Debian Bug     : 852623
    
    DSA-3796-1 for apache2 introduced a regression in sitesummary: fixing
    CVE-2016-8743 meant being more stringent when dealing with whitespace
    patterns in HTTP requests, and that change broke the upload tool of
    sitesummary-client.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.1.17+deb8u2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your sitesummary packages.
