CVE-2012-0216: Remove "Alias /doc /usr/share/doc" from the default virtual
hosts' config files.
If scripting modules like mod_php or mod_rivet are enabled on systems
where either 1) some frontend server forwards connections to an apache2
backend server on the localhost address, or 2) the machine running
apache2 is also used for web browsing, this could allow a remote
attacker to execute example scripts stored under /usr/share/doc.
Depending on the installed packages, this could lead to issues like cross
site scripting, code execution, or leakage of sensitive data.
