Vulnerability Scan Summary
SSA-2006-129-01 Apache httpd
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
New Apache packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0, 9.1, 10.0, 10.1,
10.2, and -current to fix security issues.
More details about the issues may be found in the Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:
In addition, new mod_ssl packages for Apache 1.3.35 are available for
all of these versions of Slackware, and new versions of PHP are
available for Slackware -current. These additional packages do not
fix security issues, but may be required on your system depending on
your Apache setup.
One more note about this round of updates: the packages have been given
build versions that indicate which version of Slackware they are meant
to patch, such as -1_slack8.1, or -1_slack9.0, etc. This should help to
avoid some of the issues with automatic upgrade tools by providing a
unique package name when the same fix is deployed across multiple
Slackware versions. Only patches applied to -current will have the
simple build number, such as -1.
