Subject Re: [users@httpd] XSS Issue in v2.0.59
Date Tue, 02 May 2017 16:46:31 GMT
Hey, I don't have any input on how to address those vulnerabilities, but I think the energy
you're going to expend trying to patch those would be put to better use trying to fix whatever's
incompatible with newer versions of apache so you can upgrade.

Just my two cents. Good luck either way.
