+--------------------------+
patches/packages/libwpd-0.8.9-i486-1_slack11.0.tgz:
  Upgraded to libwpd-0.8.9.
  Various overflows may lead to application crashes upon opening a specially
  crafted WordPerfect file.  This vulnerability could also conceivably be
  used by an attacker to execute arbitrary code.

    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2007-002

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.
