[slackware-security]  Apache httpd (SSA:2006-209-01)

New Apache packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0, 9.1, 10.0, 10.1,
10.2, and -current to fix a security issue with mod_rewrite.

More details about the issues may be found in the Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:

  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2006-3747

In addition, new mod_ssl packages for Apache 1.3.37 are available for
all of these versions of Slackware.  This additional package does not
fix a security issue, but may be required on your system depending on
your Apache setup.


Here are the details from the Slackware 10.2 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/apache-1.3.37-i486-1_slack10.2.tgz:
  Upgraded to apache-1.3.37.
  From the announcement on httpd.apache.org:
    This version of Apache is security fix release only.  An off-by-one flaw
    exists in the Rewrite module, mod_rewrite, as shipped with Apache 1.3
    since 1.3.28, 2.0 since 2.0.46, and 2.2 since 2.2.0.
  The Slackware Security Team feels that the vast majority of installations
  will not be configured in a vulnerable way but still suggests upgrading to
  the new apache and mod_ssl packages for maximum security.
  For more details, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2006-3747
  And see Apache's announcement here:
    http://www.apache.org/dist/httpd/Announcement1.3.html
  (* Security fix *)
patches/packages/mod_ssl-2.8.28_1.3.37-i486-1_slack10.2.tgz:
  Upgraded to mod_ssl-2.8.28-1.3.37.
