Synopsis :

The remote Slackware host is missing a security update.

Description :

New httpd packages are available for Slackware 12.0, 12.1, 12.2,
13.0, and -current to fix security issues. mod_ssl: A partial fix for
the TLS renegotiation prefix injection attack by rejecting any
client-initiated renegotiations. mod_proxy_ajp: Respond with
HTTP_BAD_REQUEST when the body is not sent when request headers
indicate a request body is incoming; not a case of
HTTP_INTERNAL_SERVER_ERROR. mod_isapi: Do not unload an isapi .dll
module until the request processing is completed, avoiding orphaned
callback pointers. [This is the most serious flaw, but does not affect
Linux systems]
