Package        : libapache-mod-dav
Vulnerability  : null pointer dereference
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2004-0809

Julian Reschke reported a problem in mod_dav of Apache 2 in connection
with a NULL pointer dereference.  When running in a threaded model,
especially with Apache 2, a segmentation fault can take out a whole
process and hence create a denial of service for the whole server.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.0.3-3.1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.0.3-10 of libapache-mod-dav and in version 2.0.51-1 of
Apache 2.

We recommend that you upgrade your mod_dav packages.


Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
