OVERVIEW

An exploit in the handling of 'Chunked Encoding' can lead to DoS or
possibly execution of arbitrary code. Functionality is enabled by default.

Most cases are caught as invalid requests and simply consume child
processes. Only outcome is DoS (by child throttling) in those cases.

update their systems as follows.

emerge apache
emerge clean
