Upgraded tcpdump packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0,
9.1, and -current to fix denial-of-service issues.  Sites using
tcpdump should upgrade to the new packages.

Here are the details from the Slackware 9.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
Sat Apr 17 11:03:35 PDT 2004
patches/packages/tcpdump-3.8.3-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to tcpdump-3.8.3 and
  libpcap-0.8.3.  This fixes a couple minor bugs that shouldn't affect
  32-bit ix86 Slackware, but we might as well have the latest.
  According to www.tcpdump.org:

    TCPDUMP version 3.8.3 has been released as of March 30, 2004. 3.8.3 is
    identical to 3.8.2, but the version number has been incremented to
    match libpcap.

    LIBPCAP version 0.8.3 has been released as of March 30, 2004. 0.8.3
    fixes a minor problem with gencode.c on 64-bit architectures. It also
    carries the correct version numbers.
+--------------------------+
Tue Mar 30 22:16:38 PST 2004
patches/packages/tcpdump-3.8.2-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to tcpdump-3.8.2
  and libpcap-0.8.2.  Fixes denial-of-service security issues.
