[slackware-security]  hplip (SSA:2013-233-01)

New hplip 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/hplip-3.12.9-i486-2_slack14.0.txz:  Rebuilt.
  This update fixes a stack-based buffer overflow in the hpmud_get_pml
  function that can allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service
  (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted SNMP response
  with a large length value.
  For more information, see:
  (* Security fix *)

Where to find the new packages:

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
( for donating FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project!  :-)

Also see the "Get Slack" section on for
additional mirror sites near you.
