New httpd packages are available for Slackware 12.0, 12.1, 12.2, 13.0, 13.1,
and -current to fix security issues.


Here are the details from the Slackware 13.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/httpd-2.2.17-i486-1_slack13.1.txz:  Upgraded.
  This fixes some denial of service bugs in the bundled libraries.
  On Slackware we do not use the bundled expat or apr-util, so the
  issues are also fixed in those external libraries.
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-3560
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-3720
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2010-1623
  (* Security fix *)

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.
