Slackware New libjpeg packages are available for Slackware 13.0, 13.1, 13.37, 14.0, 14.1, and -current to fix a security issue. [More Info...]
[slackware-security]  libjpeg (SSA:2013-350-02)

New libjpeg packages are available for Slackware 13.0, 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/libjpeg-v8a-i486-2_slack14.1.txz:  Rebuilt.
  Fix use of uninitialized memory when decoding images with missing SOS data
  for the luminance component (Y) in presence of valid chroma data (Cr, Cb).
  This could allow remote attackers to obtain sensitive information from
  uninitialized memory locations via a crafted JPEG image.
  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!  :-)

additional mirror sites near you.
