[slackware-security]  apr-util (SSA:2009-167-02)

New apr-util (and apr) packages are available for Slackware 11.0, 12.0, 12.1,
12.2, and -current to fix security issues.  The issues are with apr-util, but
older Slackware releases will require a new version of the apr package as well.

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-2009-0023
  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-1955


Here are the details from the Slackware 12.2 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/apr-1.3.5-i486-1_slack12.2.tgz:  Upgraded.
patches/packages/apr-util-1.3.7-i486-1_slack12.2.tgz:  Upgraded.
  Fix underflow in apr_strmatch_precompile.
  Fix a denial of service attack against the apr_xml_* interface
  using the "billion laughs" entity expansion technique.
  For more information, see:

Where to find the new packages:
+-----------------------------+

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

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

Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for
additional mirror sites near you.
