Posted on: 04/20/2013 12:26 PM

New xorg-server packages are available for Slackware 13.37, 14.0, and -current to fix a security issue

xorg-server (SSA:2013-109-01) for Slackware


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/xorg-server-1.12.4-i486-1_slack14.0.txz: Upgraded.
This update fixes an input flush bug with evdev. Under exceptional
conditions (keyboard input during device hotplugging), this could leak
a small amount of information intended for the X server.
This issue was evaluated to be of low impact.
For more information, see:
