Description:
Previous versions of httpd do not properly handle Options=IncludesNOEXEC
in the AllowOverride directive, which allows local users to gain
privileges via a specially crafted .htaccess file combined with an exec
element in a .shtml file.

Additionally, when a reverse proxy is configured, a vulnerability in
mod_proxy could allow a remote attacker to cause a denial of service
(CPU consumption) via crafted requests.

Both of these issues have been addressed in this release.
