New httpd packages are available for Slackware 12.0, 12.1, 12.2, 13.0, 13.1, and -current to fix security issues.

Here are the details from the Slackware 13.1 ChangeLog:
patches/packages/httpd-2.2.17-i486-1_slack13.1.txz: Upgraded.
This fixes some denial of service bugs in the bundled libraries.
On Slackware we do not use the bundled expat or apr-util, so the
issues are also fixed in those external libraries.
For more information, see:
(* Security fix *)

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! :-)

Also see the "Get Slack" section on for
additional mirror sites near you.
