Slackware New libiodbc packages are available for Slackware 13.1, 13.37, 14.0, 14.1, and -current to fix a security issue. [More Info...]
[slackware-security]  libiodbc (SSA:2013-350-01)

New libiodbc packages are available for Slackware 13.1, 13.37, 14.0, 14.1,
and -current to fix a security issue.


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/libiodbc-3.52.8-i486-1_slack14.1.txz:  Upgraded.
  This update fixes an rpath pointing to a location in /tmp that was found in
  two test programs (iodbctest and iodbctestw).  This could have allowed a
  local attacker with write access to /tmp to add modified libraries (and
  execute arbitrary code) as any user running the test programs.
  Thanks to Christopher Oliver for the bug report.
  (* Security fix *)
