Submission + - Apache web server 2.0 maintenance discontinued (parityportal.com)

hypnosec writes: Developers over at Apache project released version 2.0.65 of the Apache web server and with that have announced the discontinuation of maintenance of the 2.0 version branch and urged users to migrate to current versions of either 2.2 or 2.4 as soon as possible. Version 2.0.65 was released on July 10 which included fixes for six security holes including a bug that would allow attackers to gain control of the server [CVE-2011-3607]. The developers have, however, noted that there is a possibility of memory exhaustion through a carefully crafted .htaccess file and this issue will remain unresolved in 2.0.65.
