Hrm, maybe the caps isn't neccesary, but I wanted to get the attention
of the reader.
Anyways, a bug was recently found in Apache that could possibly be
exploited to gain access to a system. There is an exploit floating
around that -claims- to work. There are mixed opinions (based on
emperical data) as to whether or not it actually can gain access.
Regardless as to the success or failure of this particular exploit, I'd
-strongly- suggest you update your apache installs. All the major
distobutions have provided fixes, and there's also a new version of
apache posted by the apache folk that also fixes the problem.
I now return you to your regularly scheduled paranoia.
