    Posted By LinuxSecurity Advisories
    Julian Reschke reported a problem in mod_dav of Apache 2 in connection with a NULL pointer dereference. When running in a threaded model, especially with Apache 2, a segmentation fault can take out a whole process and hence create a denial of service for the whole server.

    Julian Reschke reported a problem in mod_dav of Apache 2 in connection
    with a NULL pointer dereference.  When running in a threaded model,
    especially with Apache 2, a segmentation fault can take out a whole
    process and hence create a denial of service for the whole server.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.0.3-3.1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
