    SECURITY: CVE-2021-44790: Possible buffer overflow when parsing
    multipart content in mod_lua of Apache HTTP Server 2.4.51 and
    earlier (cve.mitre.org)
    A carefully crafted request body can cause a buffer overflow in
    the mod_lua multipart parser (r:parsebody() called from Lua
    scripts).
    The Apache httpd team is not aware of an exploit for the
    vulnerabilty though it might be possible to craft one.
    This issue affects Apache HTTP Server 2.4.51 and earlier.

    SECURITY: CVE-2021-44224: Possible NULL dereference or SSRF in
    forward proxy configurations in Apache HTTP Server 2.4.51 and
    earlier (cve.mitre.org)
    A crafted URI sent to httpd configured as a forward proxy
    (ProxyRequests on) can cause a crash (NULL pointer dereference)
    or, for configurations mixing forward and reverse proxy
    declarations, can allow for requests to be directed to a
    declared Unix Domain Socket endpoint (Server Side Request
    Forgery).
    This issue affects Apache HTTP Server 2.4.7 up to 2.4.51
    (included).
