Package        : apache
Vulnerability  : insecure tempfile bug, broken mod_rewrite
Debian-specific: no
WireX have found some occurrences of insecure opening of temporary files in htdigest and htpasswd. Both programs are not installed setuid or setgid and thus the impact should be minimal. The Apache group has released another security bugfix which fixes a vulnerability in mod_rewrite which may result the remote attacker to access arbitrary files on the web server.

We recommend you upgrade your Apache packages.

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.
You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the footer to the proper configuration.
