New xrdb 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/xrdb-1.0.9-i486-1_slack13.1.txz: Upgraded.
This fixes a security issue where improperly sanitized input could lead to
privilege escalation or arbitrary command execution as root.

(* 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.
