New postfix 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/postfix-3.6.14-i586-1_slack15.0.txz: Upgraded.
Security (inbound SMTP smuggling): with "smtpd_forbid_bare_newline
= normalize" (default "no" for Postfix < 3.9), the Postfix
SMTP server requires the standard End-of-DATA sequence
., and otherwise allows command or message
content lines ending in the non-standard , processing
them as if the client sent the standard .
The alternative setting, "smtpd_forbid_bare_newline = reject"
will reject any command or message that contains a bare
, and is more likely to cause problems with legitimate
clients.
For backwards compatibility, local clients are excluded by
default with "smtpd_forbid_bare_newline_exclusions =
$mynetworks".
