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: 8.9
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.
