New xine-lib packages are available for Slackware 10.0, 10.1, 10.2, 11.0,
and -current to fix security issues.

More details about this issue may be found in the Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:

  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2007-1246


Here are the details from the Slackware 11.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
  Upgraded to xine-lib-1.1.6.
  This fixes overflows in xine-lib in some little-used media formats in
  xine-lib < 1.1.5 and other bugs in xine-lib < 1.1.6.  The overflows in
  xine-lib < 1.1.5 could definitely cause an application using xine-lib to
  crash, and it is theorized that a malicious media file could be made to run
  arbitrary code in the context of the user running the application.
  For more information, see:

  (* Security fix *)

HINT:  Getting slow download speeds from ftp.slackware.com?
Give slackware.osuosl.org a try.  This is another primary FTP site
for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading
from ftp.slackware.com.

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
(http://osuosl.org) for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project!  :-)

Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for
additional mirror sites near you.
