Bug#618857: apache2-mpm-itk: if you do not assign a user ID, the default one from Apache is _NOT_ used.

Package: apache2-mpm-itk
Version: 2.2.16-6
Severity: critical
Tags: security
Justification: root security hole

As far I tested, versions prior to 'squeeze', apache/itk behavior was as
claimed at http://mpm-itk.sesse.net/

AssignUserID: Takes two parameters, uid and gid (or really, user name
and group name); specifies what uid and gid the vhost will run as (after
parsing the request etc., of course).

_________Note that if you do not assign a user ID, the default one from
Apache will be used._____________

On 'squeeze', if user ID is not assigned by AssignUserID at VirtualHost,
default ID will be __root__. User and Group directives from Apache will
be ignored.

To temporary solve this, I added this line between IfModule and
/IfModule lines, at "Section 1: Global Environment" at apache2.conf

# itk MPM
<IfModule mpm_itk_module>
