    A flaw was found in the APR library, which could be exploited through
    Apache HTTPD's mod_autoindex.  If a directory indexed by mod_autoindex
    contained files with sufficiently long names, a remote attacker could
    send a carefully crafted request which would cause excessive CPU
    usage. This could be used in a denial of service attack.
