Description Hanno Böck gentoo-dev 2012-04-19 14:10:27 UTC
apache 2.4.2 is a security bump, from upstream Changelog:

  *) SECURITY:  (
     envvars: Fix insecure handling of LD_LIBRARY_PATH that could lead to the
     current working directory to be searched for DSOs. [Stefan Fritsch]

As we currently only have masked 2.4.*-versions in tree, this requires probably no handling by the security-team / no GLSA, but still it should be bumped.
