[slackware-security]  glibc-zoneinfo (SSA:2007-283-01)

New glibc-zoneinfo packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0, 9.1, 10.0,
10.1, 10.2, 11.0, and 12.0 to update the timezone tables to the latest
versions.  If you've noticed your clock has wandered off, these packages
should fix the problem.

This isn't really a "security issue" (or is a minor one), but it's an
important fix nevertheless.


Here are the details from the Slackware 12.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/glibc-zoneinfo-2.5-noarch-5_slack12.0.tgz:
  Upgraded to timezone data from tzcode2007h and tzdata2007h.
  This contains the latest timezone data from NIST, including some important
  changes to daylight savings time in Brasil and New Zealand.

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
directly 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.
