    Package        : libapreq2-perl
    Vulnerability  : design error
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2006-0042
    BugTraq ID     : 16710
    Debian Bug     : 354060
    
    An algorithm weakness has been discovered in Apache2::Request, the
    generic request library for Apache2 which can be exploited remotely
    and cause a denial of service via CPU consumption.
    
    The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain this package.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.04-dev-1sarge1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.07-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libapreq2, libapache2-mod-apreq2
    and libapache2-request-perl packages.
