Slackware 10.0 / 10.1 / 8.1 / 9.0 / 9.1 / current : mod_ssl (SSA:2005-251-02)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 19862


The remote Slackware host is missing a security update.


New mod_ssl packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0, 9.1, 10.0, 10.1, and -current to fix a security issue. If 'SSLVerifyClient optional' was configured in the global section of the config file, it could improperly override 'SSLVerifyClient require' in a per-location section.


Update the affected mod_ssl package.
