It was discovered that the Apache web server did not properly handle the "Options=" parameter to the AllowOverride directive: In the stable distribution , local users could enable script execution in Server Side Includes even in configurations where the AllowOverride directive contained only Options=IncludesNoEXEC. In the oldstable distribution , local users could enable script execution in Server Side Includes and CGI script execution in configurations where the AllowOverride directive contained any "Options=" value. For the stable distribution , this problem has been fixed in version 2.2.9-10+lenny3. The oldstable distribution , this problem has been fixed in version 2.2.3-4+etch8. For the testing distribution and the unstable distribution , this problem will be fixed in version 2.2.11-6. This advisory also provides updated apache2-mpm-itk packages which have been recompiled against the new apache2 packages . We recommend that you upgrade your apache2 packages.
