    function of libapache-auth-ldap, an LDAP authentication module for the
    Apache webserver, that can lead to the execution of arbitrary code.
    
    For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.6.0-3.1.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.6.0-8.1
    
    The unstable distribution (sid) does no longer contain libapache-auth-ldap.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libapache-auth-ldap package.
