[slackware-security]  apr/apr-util (SSA:2011-145-01)

New apr and apr-util packages are available for Slackware 11.0, 12.0, 12.1,
12.2, 13.0, 13.1, 13.37, and -current to fix a security issue in apr and
a crash bug in apr-util.

Here are the details from the Slackware 13.37 ChangeLog:
patches/packages/apr-1.4.5-i486-1_slack13.37.txz:  Upgraded.
  This fixes a possible denial of service due to a problem with a loop in
  the new apr_fnmatch() implementation consuming CPU.
  For more information, see:
  (* Security fix *)
patches/packages/apr-util-1.3.12-i486-1_slack13.37.txz:  Upgraded.
  Fix crash because of NULL cleanup registered by apr_ldap_rebind_init().

Where to find the new packages:

HINT:  Getting slow download speeds from
Give a try.  This is another primary FTP site
for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading
directly from

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
( for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project!  :-)
