Just FYI, the bug is a simple cross site scripting thing in 
Apache2::Status (and probably in mp1's Apache::Status as well)

The mp2 stuff is fixed by the enclosed patch as the original submitter 
has confirmed. I have committed it as revision 760926.

MP1 people, please check Apache::Status.

Apache2::Status users, please test.
