  • patches/packages/hplip-3.12.9-i486-2_slack14.0.txz
    This update fixes a stack-based buffer overflow in the hpmud_get_pml
    function that can allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service
    (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted SNMP response
    with a large length value.
    For more information, see:
    (* Security fix *)
  • patches/packages/poppler-0.20.2-i486-2_slack14.0.txz
    Sanitize error messages to remove escape sequences that could be used to
    exploit vulnerable terminal emulators.
