Additional remarks:
1. you may find a PPA, see https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+ppas?name_filter=apache2 for a list of potential candidates, don't forget to filter for your Ubuntu release for each of them
2. Often bugfixes are backported to the versions in older Ubuntu releases without doing a full version upgrade, see https://ubuntu.com/security/cve?q=&package=apache2
