  • Slackware Security Update 9/10/03

    I don't usually post this type of information. But with the over abundance of DCForums members who also use slackware I thought I would post this one. And because I'm a bit bored.

    For those that don't keep up to date on the latest security:

    Wed Sep 10 20:47:53 PDT 2003
    patches/packages/pine-4.58-i386-1.tgz: Upgraded to pine4.58.
    This fixes two vulnerabilities in earlier PINE versions found
    by iDEFENSE Labs
    http://www.idefense.com/advisory/09.10.03.txt

    [security issues in pine (SSA:2003-253-01)

    Upgraded pine packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0 and
    - -current. These fix two security problems found by iDEFENSE Labs
    which could lead to arbitrary code execution when a specially
    crafted email is processed by Pine.

    This problem is fixed in Pine 4.58. Sites which use the Pine
    mail reader should upgrade.

    Updated package for Slackware 8.1:
    ftp://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackwar....58-i386-1.tgz

    Updated package for Slackware 9.0:
    ftp://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackwar....58-i386-1.tgz

    Updated package for Slackware -current:
    ftp://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackwar....58-i486-1.tgz

    INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS:
    +------------------------+

    Upgrade using upgradepkg (as root):
    # upgradepkg pine-4.58-i386-1.tgz


    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I think in two days or so you can just dev/null/ this
