  • patches/packages/ppp-2.4.8-i586-1_slack14.2.txz
    This update fixes a security issue:
    By sending an unsolicited EAP packet to a vulnerable ppp client or server,
    an unauthenticated remote attacker could cause memory corruption in the
    pppd process, which may allow for arbitrary code execution.
    For more information, see:
