Comments (Legacy)
 Cox> Many vendors have included fixes for CVE-2001-0131 in their distributions
   of Apache even though this has not been fixed upstream.  I still believe
   that this is not worthy of a separate CVE name since this is just Debian
   forgetting to include their fix for CVE-2001-0131 in one of their versions,
   and then correcting it.
