This adds an ap_die() call to ap_read_request(), which eventually leads to the NULL pointer dereference issue for which CVE-2015-0253 was assigned.
The above change is not include in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 and earlier httpd packages, therefore they are not affected by this issue.
This issue causes httpd child process crash. When using prefork MPM, such crash only affects attacker's connection. For other MPMs, connections of other users may be affected.
This issue did not affect the versions of httpd as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4, 5, 6, and 7; JBoss Enterprise Web Server 1 and 2; JBoss Web Server 3; and JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6.
