Hello Richard,
Seems to me I have also been so unprotected for this long ...

I love the debian project and hope it is not going to an end...

However I already use apache2 for all my machines.

how long has this bug been around?
Almost a year, looking at that original patch that caused the problem. To
fair, nobody had commented on the security issues until I stumbled across
a month ago though.

Sounds scary.
Yeah, scared me when I first saw it and realised how vulnerable I'd been
for so
long. What's also scary is the complete lack of action on what is a fairly
serious problem. I used to think that the Debian project had a sane
attitude to
security. Maybe all the good developers have gone to Ubuntu.
