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

Here are the details from the Slackware 14.0 ChangeLog:
patches/packages/hplip-3.12.9-i486-3_slack14.0.txz:  Rebuilt.
  This fixes a polkit race condition that could allow local users to bypass
  intended access restrictions.

Where to find the new packages:

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
