New httpd packages are available for Slackware 12.0, 12.1, 12.2, 13.0, 13.1, 13.37, and -current. These have been compiled against the new versions of apr and apr-util, which were upgraded to fix a security issue that affects Apache httpd. It is recommended that all three updates be applied.

Here are the details from the Slackware 13.37 ChangeLog:

patches/packages/httpd-2.2.18-i486-1_slack13.37.txz: Upgraded. This is a bug fix release, but since the upgrades to apr/apr-util require at least an httpd recompile we opted to upgrade to the newest httpd.

Where to find the new packages:

HINT: Getting slow download speeds from Give a try. This is another primary FTP site for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading directly from

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab ( for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting to the Slackware project! :-)
