    ==========================================================================
    
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
    - Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
    - Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
    
    Summary:
    
    Several security issues were fixed in Apache HTTP Server.
    
    Software Description:
    - apache2: Apache HTTP server
    
    Details:
    
    Marek Kroemeke discovered that the mod_proxy module incorrectly handled
    certain requests. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause the
    server to stop responding, leading to a denial of service. This issue only
    affected Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. (CVE-2014-0117)
    
    Giancarlo Pellegrino and Davide Balzarotti discovered that the mod_deflate
    module incorrectly handled body decompression. A remote attacker could use
    this issue to cause resource consumption, leading to a denial of service.
    (CVE-2014-0118)
    
    Marek Kroemeke and others discovered that the mod_status module incorrectly
    handled certain requests. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause
    the server to stop responding, leading to a denial of service, or possibly
    execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2014-0226)
    
    Rainer Jung discovered that the mod_cgid module incorrectly handled certain
    scripts. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause the server to stop
    responding, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2014-0231)
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
      apache2-bin                     2.4.7-1ubuntu4.1
    
    Ubuntu 12.04 LTS:
      apache2.2-bin                   2.2.22-1ubuntu1.7
    
    Ubuntu 10.04 LTS:
      apache2.2-bin                   2.2.14-5ubuntu8.14
    
    In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
