The remote Slackware host is missing a security update.


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.


Update the affected apache package.
