New netatalk packages are available for Slackware 14.1, 14.2, 15.0, and -current
to fix a security issue.

Here are the details from the Slackware 15.0 ChangeLog:
patches/packages/netatalk-3.1.17-i586-1_slack15.0.txz: Upgraded.
This update fixes bugs and a security issue:
Validate data type in dalloc_value_for_key(). This flaw could allow a
malicious actor to cause Netatalk's afpd daemon to crash, or possibly to
execute arbitrary code.
