- mozilla-firefox (SSA:2010-253-01)
- mozilla-thunderbird (SSA:2010-253-02)

[slackware-security] seamonkey (SSA:2010-253-03)
New seamonkey packages are available for Slackware 12.2, 13.0, 13.1, and -current to fix security issues.

Here are the details from the Slackware 13.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/seamonkey-2.0.7-i486-1_slack13.1.txz: Upgraded.
This release fixes some more security vulnerabilities.

Where to find the new packages:
+-----------------------------+

HINT: Getting slow download speeds from ftp.slackware.com?
Give slackware.osuosl.org a try. This is another primary FTP site
for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading
directly from ftp.slackware.com.

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
(http://osuosl.org) for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project! :-)

Also see the "Get Slack" section on for
additional mirror sites near you.
