New wpa_supplicant 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/wpa_supplicant-2.10-i586-2_slack15.0.txz: Rebuilt.
Patched the implementation of PEAP in wpa_supplicant to prevent an
authentication bypass. For a successful attack, wpa_supplicant must be
configured to not verify the network's TLS certificate during Phase 1
authentication, and an eap_peap_decrypt vulnerability can then be abused
to skip Phase 2 authentication. The attack vector is sending an EAP-TLV
Success packet instead of starting Phase 2. This allows an adversary to
impersonate Enterprise Wi-Fi networks.
