Here are the details from the Slackware 10.2 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/gzip-1.3.5-i486-1_slack10.2.tgz:
  Upgraded to gzip-1.3.5, and fixed a variety of bugs.
  Some of the bugs have possible security implications if gzip or its tools are
  fed a carefully constructed malicious archive.  Most of these issues were
  recently discovered by Tavis Ormandy and the Google Security Team.  Thanks
  to them, and also to the ALT and Owl developers for cleaning up the patch.
  For further details about the issues fixed, please see:

Where to find the new packages:
+-----------------------------+

HINT:  Getting slow download speeds from ftp.slackware.com?
Give slackware.osuosl.org a try.  This is another primary FTP site
for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading
from ftp.slackware.com.

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
(http://osuosl.org) for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project!  :-)

Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for
additional mirror sites near you.
