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


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/httpd-2.4.9-i486-1_slack14.1.txz:  Upgraded.
  This update addresses two security issues.
  Segfaults with truncated cookie logging. mod_log_config:  Prevent segfaults
    when logging truncated cookies.  Clean up the cookie logging parser to
    recognize only the cookie=value pairs, not valueless cookies.
  mod_dav:  Keep track of length of cdata properly when removing leading
    spaces. Eliminates a potential denial of service from specifically crafted
    DAV WRITE requests.
  For more information, see:
