Slackware New httpd packages are available for Slackware 13.0, 13.1, 13.37, 14.0, 14.1, and -current to fix security issues. [More Info...]
[slackware-security]  httpd (SSA:2014-204-01)

New httpd packages are available for Slackware 13.0, 13.1, 13.37, 14.0, 14.1,
and -current to fix security issues.


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/httpd-2.4.10-i486-1_slack14.1.txz:  Upgraded.
  This update fixes the following security issues:
  *) SECURITY: CVE-2014-0117 (cve.mitre.org)
     mod_proxy: Fix crash in Connection header handling which
     allowed a denial of service attack against a reverse proxy
     with a threaded MPM.  [Ben Reser]
  *) SECURITY: CVE-2014-0118 (cve.mitre.org)
     mod_deflate: The DEFLATE input filter (inflates request bodies) now
     limits the length and compression ratio of inflated request bodies to
     avoid denial of sevice via highly compressed bodies.  See directives
     DeflateInflateLimitRequestBody, DeflateInflateRatioLimit,
     and DeflateInflateRatioBurst. [Yann Ylavic, Eric Covener]
  *) SECURITY: CVE-2014-0226 (cve.mitre.org)
     Fix a race condition in scoreboard handling, which could lead to
     a heap buffer overflow.  [Joe Orton, Eric Covener]
  *) SECURITY: CVE-2014-0231 (cve.mitre.org)
     mod_cgid: Fix a denial of service against CGI scripts that do
     not consume stdin that could lead to lingering HTTPD child processes
     filling up the scoreboard and eventually hanging the server.  By
     default, the client I/O timeout (Timeout directive) now applies to
     communication with scripts.  The CGIDScriptTimeout directive can be
     used to set a different timeout for communication with scripts.
     [Rainer Jung, Eric Covener, Yann Ylavic]
