[slackware-security]  lcms (SSA:2009-083-01)

New lcms packages are available for Slackware 10.0, 10.1, 10.2, 11.0, 12.0,
12.1, 12.2, and -current to fix security issues.

More details about the issues may be found in the Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:

  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-0581
  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-0723
  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-0733


Here are the details from the Slackware 12.2 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/lcms-1.18-i486-1_slack12.2.tgz:  Upgraded to lcms-1.18.
  This update fixes security issues discovered in LittleCMS by Chris Evans.
  These flaws could cause program crashes (denial of service) or the execution
  of arbitrary code as the user of the lcms-linked program.
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-0581
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-0723

Where to find the new packages:
+-----------------------------+

HINT:  Getting slow download speeds from ftp.slackware.com?
Give slackware.osuosl.org a try.  This is another primary FTP site
for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading
directly from ftp.slackware.com.

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
(http://osuosl.org) for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project!  :-)

Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for
additional mirror sites near you.
