Bug#379892: default config crawls the htdig.org website

Package: htdig
Version: 1:3.2.0b6-1
Severity: important


in /etc/htdig/htdig.conf one reads:

start_url:              http://www.htdig.org/

If the Debian admin does not change this, each day the htdig.org website
will be crawled.  Multiplied by the number of Debian installation left
in this default state, this could cause a DDoS for the htdig.org
