Limit directives in .htaccess files. In certain configurations, a remote
attacker could possibly use this issue to read arbitrary server memory,
including sensitive information. This issue is known as Optionsbleed.

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 17.04
