The Apache HTTP Server is a powerful, efficient, and extensible
web server.

Update Information:

This update includes the latest release of the Apache HTTP Server, version
2.2.13, fixing several security issues:    * Fix a potential Denial-of-Service
attack against mod_deflate or other modules, by forcing the server to consume
CPU time in compressing a large file after a client disconnects.
(CVE-2009-1891)    * Prevent the "Includes" Option from being enabled in an
.htaccess file if the AllowOverride restrictions do not permit it.
(CVE-2009-1195)    * Fix a potential Denial-of-Service attack against mod_proxy
in a reverse proxy configuration, where a remote attacker can force a proxy
process to consume CPU time indefinitely. (CVE-2009-1890)    * mod_proxy_ajp:
Avoid delivering content from a previous request which failed to send a request
body.  (CVE-2009-1191)    Many bug fixes are also included; see the upstream
changelog for further details:
