New mariadb packages are available for Slackware 15.0 and -current to
fix a security issue.

Here are the details from the Slackware 15.0 ChangeLog:
patches/packages/mariadb-10.5.25-i586-1_slack15.0.txz: Upgraded.
This update fixes bugs and a security issue:
Difficult to exploit vulnerability allows unauthenticated attacker with
logon to the infrastructure where MariaDB Server executes to compromise the
server. This could result in unauthorized update, insert or delete access
to some of the data as well as unauthorized read access to a subset of the
data and unauthorized ability to cause a partial denial of service.
