New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 4.7
SynopsisThe remote Slackware host is missing a security update.
DescriptionNew 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.
SolutionUpdate the affected apache package.
