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.
