New tcpdump packages are available for Slackware 9.0, 9.1, 10.0, 10.1, 10.2, 11.0, and 12.0 to fix a security issue.

More details about this issue may be found in the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:

Here are the details from the Slackware 12.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/tcpdump-3.9.7-i486-1_slack12.0.tgz:
Upgraded to libpcap-0.9.7, tcpdump-3.9.7.
This new version fixes an integer overflow in the BGP dissector which
could possibly allow remote attackers to crash tcpdump or to execute
arbitrary code.

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
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 http://slackware.com for
additional mirror sites near you.
