Slackware New gzip packages are available for Slackware 13.0 (64-bit) and -current to fix a security issue. More details about this issue may be found in the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:
[slackware-security]  gzip (SSA:2010-060-03)

New gzip packages are available for Slackware 13.0 (64-bit) and -current to
fix a security issue.

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

  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2010-0001


Here are the details from the Slackware64 13.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/gzip-1.4-x86_64-1_slack13.0.tgz:  Upgraded.
  gzip -d could segfault and/or clobber the stack, possibly leading to
  arbitrary code execution.  This affects x86_64 but not 32-bit systems.
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2010-0001
  (* Security fix *)

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.

Updated package for Slackware x86_64 13.0:
ftp://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackware/slackware64-13.0/patches/packages/gzip-1.4-x86_64-1_slack13.0.tgz
