The Apache Portable Runtime (APR) is a portability library used by the
Apache HTTP Server and other projects. It provides a free library of C
data structures and routines.
The fix for CVE-2011-0419 introduced an infinite loop flaw in the

a backported patch to correct this issue. Applications using the apr
library, such as httpd, must be restarted for this update to take
