Slackware New mozilla-firefox packages are available for Slackware 13.0 and 13.1 to fix a security issue. [More Info...]
[slackware-security]  mozilla-firefox (SSA:2011-086-02)

New mozilla-firefox packages are available for Slackware 13.0 and 13.1
to fix a security issue.


Here are the details from the Slackware 13.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/mozilla-firefox-3.6.16-i686-1.txz:  Upgraded.
  This release fixes a security vulnerability by blacklisting several
  invalid HTTPS certificates.
  For more information, see:
    http://www.mozilla.org/security/announce/2011/mfsa2011-11.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.
