[slackware-security]  glibc (SSA:2013-260-01)

New glibc packages are available for Slackware 13.0, 13.1, 13.37, 14.0,
and -current to fix security issues.


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/glibc-2.15-i486-8_slack14.0.txz:  Rebuilt.
  Patched to fix integer overflows in pvalloc, valloc, and
  posix_memalign/memalign/aligned_alloc.
  Thanks to mancha for the backported patch.
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2013-2013-4332
  (* Security fix *)
  Also, as long as these packages were being respun anyway, I added a patch
  to fix the check for AVX opcodes.  This was causing crashes on Xen.
  Thanks to Dale Gallagher.
patches/packages/glibc-i18n-2.15-i486-8_slack14.0.txz:  Rebuilt.
patches/packages/glibc-profile-2.15-i486-8_slack14.0.txz:  Rebuilt.
patches/packages/glibc-solibs-2.15-i486-8_slack14.0.txz:  Rebuilt.
patches/packages/glibc-zoneinfo-2013d_2013d-noarch-8_slack14.0.txz:  Rebuilt.
