[slackware-security]  bzip2 (SSA:2008-098-02)

New bzip2 packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0, 9.1, 10.0,
10.1, 10.2, 11.0, 12.0, and -current to fix a DoS issue.

More details about this issue may be found in the Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:

  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2008-1372


Here are the details from the Slackware 12.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/bzip2-1.0.5-i486-1_slack12.0.tgz:  Upgraded to bzip2-1.0.5.
  Previous versions of bzip2 contained a buffer overread error that could cause
  applications linked to libbz2 to crash, resulting in a denial of service.
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2008-1372
  (* Security fix *)

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
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.
