Updated bzip2 packages for Slackware
Posted on: 09/21/2010 03:20 PM

Updated bzip2 packages are now also available for Slackware Linux


[slackware-security] bzip2 (SSA:2010-263-01)
New bzip2 packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0, 9.1, 10.0, 10.1, 10.2,
11.0, 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/bzip2-1.0.6-i486-1_slack13.1.txz: Upgraded.
This update fixes an integer overflow that could allow a specially
crafted bzip2 archive to cause a crash (denial of service), or execute
arbitrary code.
For more information, see:

(* Security fix *)

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