[slackware-security]  httpd (SSA:2011-252-01)

Not long ago, httpd package updates were issued to clamp down on a denial of 
service bug that's seen some action in the wild.  New packages are available
for Slackware 12.0, 12.1, 12.2, 13.0, 13.1, 13.37, and -current.


Here are the details from the Slackware 13.37 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/httpd-2.2.20-i486-1_slack13.37.txz:  Upgraded.
  SECURITY: CVE-2011-3192 (cve.mitre.org)
  core: Fix handling of byte-range requests to use less memory, to avoid
  denial of service. If the sum of all ranges in a request is larger than
  the original file, ignore the ranges and send the complete file.
  PR 51714. [Stefan Fritsch, Jim Jagielski, Ruediger Pluem, Eric Covener]
  For more information, see:
