Updated httpd packages that fix one security issue are now available for
Red Hat Application Stack v2.

The Apache HTTP Server is a popular web server.

excessive amount of memory and CPU time via HTTP requests with a

All httpd users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a
backported patch to correct this issue. After installing the updated
packages, the httpd daemon must be restarted for the update to take effect.
