Slackware 8.1 / 9.0 / 9.1 / current : apache (SSA:2004-133-01)

This script is Copyright (C) 2005-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Slackware host is missing a security update.

Description :

New apache packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0, 9.1, and
-current to fix security issues. These include a possible
denial-of-service attack as well as the ability to possible pipe shell
escapes through Apache's errorlog (which could create an exploit if
the error log is read in a terminal program that does not filter such
escapes). We recommend that sites running Apache upgrade to the new
Apache package.
