    This update for apache2 fixes several issues.

    These security issues were fixed:

    - CVE-2017-9798: Prevent use-after-free use of memory that allowed for an
    information leak via OPTIONS (bsc#1058058)
    - CVE-2017-9788: Uninitialized memory reflection in mod_auth_digest could
    have lead to leakage of potentially confidential information, and a
    segfault in
    other cases resulting in DoS (bsc#1048576).
    - CVE-2017-7679: mod_mime could have read one byte past the end of a
    buffer when sending a malicious Content-Type response header
    - CVE-2017-3169: mod_ssl may dereferenced a NULL pointer when third-party
    modules call ap_hook_process_connection() during an HTTP request to an
    HTTPS port allowing for DoS (bsc#1045062).
    - CVE-2017-3167: Use of the ap_get_basic_auth_pw() by third-party modules
    outside of the authentication phase may have lead to authentication
    requirements being bypassed (bsc#1045065).

    These non-security issues were fixed:

    - remove /usr/bin/http2 symlink only during apache2 package uninstall, not
    upgrade (bsc#1041830)
    - gensslcert: use hostname when fqdn is too long (bsc#1035829)
    - add NotifyAccess=all to service file (bsc#980663)
