  • patches/packages/glibc-2.9-i486-4_slack13.0.txz
    Patched “dynamic linker expands $ORIGIN in setuid library search path”.
    This security issue allows a local attacker to gain root if they can create
    a hard link to a setuid root binary. Thanks to Tavis Ormandy.
    For more information, see:
    (* Security fix *)
