Slackware New gnutls packages are available for Slackware 13.0, 13.1, 13.37, 14.0, 14.1, and -current to fix security issues. [More Info...]
[slackware-security]  gnutls (SSA:2014-156-01)

New gnutls packages are available for Slackware 13.0, 13.1, 13.37, 14.0, 14.1,
and -current to fix security issues.

Here are the details from the Slackware 14.1 ChangeLog:
patches/packages/gnutls-3.1.25-i486-1_slack14.1.txz:  Upgraded.
  A security issue has been corrected in gnutls.  This vulnerability
  affects the client side of the gnutls library.  A server that sends
  a specially crafted ServerHello could corrupt the memory of a requesting
  client.  This may allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code.
  Additional vulnerabilities in the embedded libtasn1 library have also
  been patched.
  Thanks to mancha for the backported patches.
  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!  :-)
