Slackware 1095 Published by

A freetype security update has been released for Slackware

New freetype packages are available for Slackware 11.0, 12.0, 12.1, 12.2, 13.0, 13.1, 13.37, and -current to fix security issues.

Here are the details from the Slackware 13.37 ChangeLog:
Since freetype-2.4.8 many fixes were made to better handle invalid fonts.
Many of them are vulnerabilities (see CVE-2012-1126 up to CVE-2012-1144
and SA48320) so all users should upgrade.
(* Security fix *)

Where to find the new packages:
