[slackware-security]  expat (SSA:2011-041-02)

New expat packages are available for Slackware 11.0, 12.0, 12.1, 12.2, 13.0,
13.1, and -current to fix security issues.


Here are the details from the Slackware 13.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/expat-2.0.1-i486-2_slack13.1.txz:  Upgraded.
  Fixed various crash and hang bugs.
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-2625
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-3560
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-3720
  (* 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.
