New xdg-utils packages are available for Slackware 12.2 and -current
to fix security issues. Applications that use /etc/mailcap could be
tricked into running an arbitrary script through xdg-open, and a
separate flaw in xdg-open could allow the execution of arbitrary
commands embedded in untrusted input provided to xdg-open.
