[slackware-security]  cyrus-sasl (SSA:2009-134-01)

New cyrus-sasl packages are available for Slackware 10.2, 11.0, 12.0, 12.1,
12.2, and -current to fix a security issue.  A buffer overflow in the
sasl_encode64() function could lead to a denial of service or possible
execution of arbitrary code.

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-2009-0688


Here are the details from the Slackware 12.2 ChangeLog:

  to crashes or the execution of arbitrary code.
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-0688

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.
