Slackware New hplip packages are available for Slackware 14.0 to fix a security issue. [More Info...]
[slackware-security]  hplip (SSA:2013-339-04)

New hplip packages are available for Slackware 14.0 to fix a security issue.


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/hplip-3.12.9-i486-4_slack14.0.txz:  Rebuilt.
  This update disables the automatic upgrade feature which can be easily
  fooled into downloading an arbitrary binary and executing it.  This
  issue affects only Slackware 14.0 (earlier versions do not have the
  feature, and newer ones had already disabled it).
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2013-6427
  (* Security fix *)

(http://osuosl.org) for donating FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project!  :-)
