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

high Nessus Plugin ID 18787
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

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.

Solution

Update the affected apache package.
