Slackware New freetype packages are available for Slackware 11.0, 12.0, 12.1, 12.2, 13.0, 13.1, 13.37, and -current to fix security issues. [More Info...]
[slackware-security]  freetype (SSA:2012-176-01)

New freetype packages are available for Slackware 11.0, 12.0, 12.1, 12.2,
13.0, 13.1, 13.37, and -current to fix security issues.


Here are the details from the Slackware 13.37 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
  Since freetype-2.4.8 many fixes were made to better handle invalid fonts.
  Many of them are vulnerabilities (see CVE-2012-1126 up to CVE-2012-1144
  and SA48320) so all users should upgrade.
  (* Security fix *)
