Here are the details from the Slackware 12.0 ChangeLog:

Mon Mar 31 23:33:58 CDT 2008
xap/xine-lib-1.1.11.1-i686-1_slack12.0.tgz:
Upgraded to xine-lib-1.1.11.1.
Earlier versions of xine-lib suffer from an integer overflow which may lead
to a buffer overflow that could potentially be used to gain unauthorized
access to the machine if a malicious media file is played back. File types
affected this time include .flv, .mov, .rm, .mve, .mkv, and .cak.

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.
