SynopsisThe remote Slackware host is missing a security update.
DescriptionNew 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]
SolutionUpdate the affected httpd package.
