    The Apache HTTP Server powers the majority of web servers around the world. As such, when there is a security flaw, it's critical to fix it as quickly as possible. The Apache Software Foundation this week released Apache HTTP Server 2.2.19, fixing a security flaws in the open source web server. The 2.2.19 release was triggered by a flaw in the 2.2.18 release earlier this month which created new regressions after fixing other flaws.

    A fix in the Apache Portable runtime for the 2.2.18 release, which is bundled with HTTP Server triggered a possible denial of service (DoS) issue.
