Bug Fixes For Apache Portable Runtime Library

The Apache
Portable Runtime Project
have announced version 0.9.19 of both
the APR Apache Portable Runtime library and the APR-util Apache
Portable Utility library.
Both are security and bug fix releases, which target users who
require APR 0.9 compatibility. The Apache Portable Runtime advise
that the security fixes in these releases be evaluated in the
context of how APR-consuming applications use them, in order to
determine if they cover vulnerabilities in your specific
application. The fixes include a denial of service attack, buffer
over-read flaws in the bundled copy of expat, and overflow in rmm.
Both releases can be downloaded now.
