Slackware current : slackware-current security updates (SSA:2005-251-03)

Synopsis :

The remote Slackware host is missing a security update.

Description :

This advisory summarizes recent security fixes in Slackware -current.
Usually security advisories are not issued on problems that exist only
within the test version of Slackware (slackware-current), but since
it's so close to being released as Slackware 10.2, and since there
have been several -cuurent-only issues recently, it has been decided
that it would be a good idea to release a summary of all of the
security fixes in Slackware -current for the last 2 weeks. Some of
these are -current only, and some affect other versions of Slackware
(and advisories for these have already been issued).
