[slackware-security]  httpd (SSA:2013-218-02)

New httpd packages are available for Slackware 12.1, 12.2, 13.0, 13.1, 13.37,
14.0, and -current to fix security issues.

Here are the details from the Slackware 14.0 ChangeLog:
patches/packages/httpd-2.4.6-i486-1_slack14.0.txz:  Upgraded.
  This update addresses two security issues:
  * SECURITY: CVE-2013-1896 ( Sending a MERGE request against
    a URI handled by mod_dav_svn with the source href (sent as part of the
    request body as XML) pointing to a URI that is not configured for DAV
    will trigger a segfault.
  * SECURITY: CVE-2013-2249 ( mod_session_dbd: Make sure that
    dirty flag is respected when saving sessions, and ensure the session ID
    is changed each time the session changes.  This changes the format of the
    updatesession SQL statement.  Existing configurations must be changed.
  For more information, see:
  (* Security fix *)

Where to find the new packages:
