New curl packages are available for Slackware 12.1, 12.2, 13.0, 13.1, 13.37,
14.0, and -current to fix a security issue.


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/curl-7.29.0-i486-3_slack14.0.txz:  Rebuilt.
  This fixes a minor security issue where a decode buffer boundary flaw in
  libcurl could lead to heap corruption.
  For more information, see:
    http://curl.haxx.se/docs/adv_20130622.html
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2013-2174
