New libyaml 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/libyaml-0.1.6-i486-1_slack14.1.txz:  Upgraded.
  This update fixes a heap overflow in URI escape parsing of YAML in Ruby,
  where a specially crafted string could cause a heap overflow leading to
  arbitrary code execution.
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2014-2525
    https://www.ruby-lang.org/en/news/2014/03/29/heap-overflow-in-yaml-uri-escape-parsing-cve-2014-2525/
  (* Security fix *)
