Package        : apache
Problem type   : remote DoS / exploit
Debian-specific: no
CVE name       : CAN-2002-0392
CERT advisory  : VU#944335

The DSA-131-1 advisory for the Apache chunk handling vulnerability
contained an error and was missing some essential information:

* The upstream fix was for the 1.3 series was made in version 1.3.26,
  not version 1.3.16 as the advisory incorrectly stated

* The package upgrade does not restart the apache server automatically,
  this will have to be done manually. Please make sure your
  configuration is correct ("apachectl configtest" will verify that for
  you) and restart it using "/etc/init.d/apache restart"

For details on the vulnerability and the updated packages please see
the original advisory or visit the Debian security web-pages (available
at http://www.debian.org/security/).
