    The Apache Software Foundation announced that some versions of
    mod_python contain a bug which, when processing a request with a
    malformed query string, could cause the corresponding Apache child to
    crash.  This bug could be exploited by a remote attacker to cause a
    denial of service.
    
    For the current stable distribution (woody) this problem has been
    fixed in version 2:2.7.8-0.0woody2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2:2.7.10-1.
    
    We recommend that you update your libapache-mod-python package.
