Slackware New rdesktop packages are available for Slackware 11.0, 12.0, 12.1, 12.2, 13.0, 13.1, and -current to fix a security issue. [More Info...]
[slackware-security]  rdesktop (SSA:2011-110-01)

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


Here are the details from the Slackware 13.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/rdesktop-1.6.0-i486-2_slack13.1.txz:  Rebuilt.
  Patched a traversal vulnerability (disallow /.. requests).
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2011-1595
  (* 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.
