New udisks and udisks2 packages are available for Slackware 14.0, 14.1,
and -current to fix a security issue.


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/udisks-1.0.5-i486-1_slack14.1.txz:  Upgraded.
  This update fixes a stack-based buffer overflow when handling long path
  names.  A malicious, local user could use this flaw to create a
  specially-crafted directory structure that could lead to arbitrary code
  execution with the privileges of the udisks daemon (root).
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2014-0004
  (* Security fix *)
patches/packages/udisks2-2.1.3-i486-1_slack14.1.txz:  Upgraded.

  names.  A malicious, local user could use this flaw to create a
