[slackware-security]  httpd (SSA:2011-133-02)

New httpd packages are available for Slackware 12.0, 12.1, 12.2, 13.0, 13.1,
13.37, and -current.  These have been compiled against the new versions of
apr and apr-util, which were upgraded to fix a security issue that affects
Apache httpd.  It is recommended that all three updates be applied.


Here are the details from the Slackware 13.37 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/httpd-2.2.18-i486-1_slack13.37.txz:  Upgraded.
  This is a bug fix release, but since the upgrades to apr/apr-util require at
  least an httpd recompile we opted to upgrade to the newest httpd.
+--------------------------+


Where to find the new packages:
+-----------------------------+

HINT:  Getting slow download speeds from ftp.slackware.com?
Give slackware.osuosl.org a try.  This is another primary FTP site
for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading
directly from ftp.slackware.com.

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
(http://osuosl.org) for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project!  :-)

Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for
additional mirror sites near you.
