Last Week's Updates and Upgrades

Another day, another dollar. Or, err, another kernel update. The Linux kernel in Slackware current now stands at 4.14.73 as of Saturday 29th September. Lots of other miscellaneous security flaw and bug fixes as always, among them for the Apache web server httpd daemon. Better upgrade this one if you got a server running. Enjoy.

       This update fixes security issues:
       There was a long-existing flaw in the documentation for ms-self, krb5-self,
       ms-subdomain, and krb5-subdomain rules in update-policy statements. Though
       the policies worked as intended, operators who configured their servers
       according to the misleading documentation may have thought zone updates were
       more restricted than they were; users of these rule types are advised to
       review the documentation and correct their configurations if necessary. New
       rule types matching the previously documented behavior will be introduced in
       a future maintenance release.
       named could crash during recursive processing of DNAME records when
       deny-answer-aliases was in use. This flaw is disclosed in CVE-2018-5740.
       For more information, see:
       https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2018-5740
       (* Security fix *)
n/httpd-2.4.35-x86_64-1.txz: Upgraded.
       This release fixes bugs and regressions in httpd-2.4.34, adds an
       apache2ctl -> apachectl symlink, and no longer automatically
       overwrites rc.httpd when upgraded.
