3 Security Updates for Slackware Linux
Posted on: 10/23/2010 12:30 PM

3 new security updates are available for Slackware:

- glibc (SSA:2010-295-01)
- mozilla-thunderbird (SSA:2010-295-03)
- mozilla-firefox (SSA:2010-295-02)

[slackware-security] glibc (SSA:2010-295-01)
New glibc packages are available for Slackware 12.0, 12.1, 12.2, 13.0, 13.1, and -current to fix a security issue.

Here are the details from the Slackware 13.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/glibc-2.11.1-i486-4_slack13.1.txz: Rebuilt.
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:
http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2010-3847
http://seclists.org/fulldisclosure/2010/Oct/257
(* Security fix *)
patches/packages/glibc-i18n-2.11.1-i486-4_slack13.1.txz: Rebuilt.
patches/packages/glibc-profile-2.11.1-i486-4_slack13.1.txz: Rebuilt.
patches/packages/glibc-solibs-2.11.1-i486-4_slack13.1.txz: Rebuilt.
patches/packages/glibc-zoneinfo-2.11.1-noarch-4_slack13.1.txz: Rebuilt.

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! :-)
