Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

New apache packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0, 9.1, and -current to
fix security issues. These include a possible denial-of-service attack as well
as the ability to possible pipe shell escapes through Apache's errorlog (which
could create an exploit if the error log is read in a terminal program that
does not filter such escapes). We recommend that sites running Apache upgrade
to the new Apache package.
