[slackware-security]  mozilla-firefox (SSA:2010-343-01)

New mozilla-firefox packages are available for Slackware 13.0, 13.1,
and -current to fix security issues.


Here are the details from the Slackware 13.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/mozilla-firefox-3.6.13-i686-1.txz:  Upgraded.
  This fixes some security issues.
  For more information, see:
    http://www.mozilla.org/security/known-vulnerabilities/firefox36.html
  (* 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.
