    By sending request bodies in a slow loris way to plain resources, the h2
    stream for that request unnecessarily occupied a server thread cleaning up
    that incoming data. This affects only HTTP/2 (mod_http2) connections in
    Apache HTTP Server versions 2.4.37 and prior (CVE-2018-17189).
    
    In Apache HTTP Server 2.4 release 2.4.37 and prior, mod_session checks the
    session expiry time before decoding the session. This causes session
    expiry time to be ignored for mod_session_cookie sessions since the expiry
    time is loaded when the session is decoded (CVE-2018-17199).
    
    The apache package has been updated to version 2.4.38, fixing these issues
    and several other bugs.  See the upstream CHANGES files for details.
