Description

New Apache packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0, 9.1, 10.0, 10.1, 10.2, and -current to fix a security issue with mod_rewrite.

More details about the issues may be found in the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:

http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2006-3747

In addition, new mod_ssl packages for Apache 1.3.37 are available for all of these versions of Slackware. This additional package does not fix a security issue, but may be required on your system depending on your Apache setup.

Here are the details from the Slackware 10.2 ChangeLog:

patches/packages/apache-1.3.37-i486-1_slack10.2.tgz: Upgraded to apache-1.3.37. From the announcement on httpd.apache.org: This version of Apache is security fix release only. An off-by-one flaw exists in the Rewrite module, mod_rewrite, as shipped with Apache 1.3 since 1.3.28, 2.0 since 2.0.46, and 2.2 since 2.2.0. The Slackware Security Team feels that the vast majority of installations will not be configured in a vulnerable way but still suggests upgrading to the new apache and mod_ssl packages for maximum security. For more details, see: http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2006-3747 And see Apache's announcement here: http://www.apache.org/dist/httpd/Announcement1.3.html ( Security fix ) patches/packages/mod_ssl-2.8.28_1.3.37-i486-1_slack10.2.tgz: Upgraded to mod_ssl-2.8.28-1.3.37.
