Details:

USN-5212-1 fixed several vulnerabilities in Apache. This update provides
the corresponding update for Ubuntu 14.04 ESM and Ubuntu 16.04 ESM.

Original advisory details:

 It was discovered that the Apache HTTP Server incorrectly handled certain
 forward proxy requests. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause
 the server to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly perform
 a Server Side Request Forgery attack. (CVE-2021-44224)

 handled memory in the multipart parser. A remote attacker could use this
 issue to cause the server to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 16.04 ESM:
