SSA-2003-308-01 apache security update Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
SSA-2003-308-01 apache security update

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Apache httpd is a hypertext transfer protocol server, and is used
by over two thirds of the Internet's web sites.

Upgraded Apache packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0, 9.1,
and -current. These fix local vulnerabilities that could allow users
who can create or edit Apache config files to gain additional
rights. Sites running Apache should upgrade to the new packages.

In addition, new mod_ssl packages have been prepared for all platforms,
and new PHP packages have been prepared for Slackware 8.1, 9.0, and
- -current (9.1 already uses PHP 4.3.3). In -current, these packages
also move the Apache module directory from /usr/libexec to
/usr/libexec/apache. Links for all of these related packages are
provided below.

Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:
