The problem was originally identified on apache2 (see
http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/10355/) and it has already been patched

Incidentally, AFAIK there is no vulnerability unless you are using
"SSLOptions FakeBasicAuth". It's a fairly specialised option so my
feeling is that this doesn't urgently affect a whole lot of people... Of
course, you should still upgrade just in case some time in the future
you do switch that option on.
