[slackware-security]  xorg-server (SSA:2013-109-01)

New xorg-server packages are available for Slackware 13.37, 14.0, and -current
to fix a security issue.


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/xorg-server-1.12.4-i486-1_slack14.0.txz:  Upgraded.
  This update fixes an input flush bug with evdev.  Under exceptional
  conditions (keyboard input during device hotplugging), this could leak
  a small amount of information intended for the X server.
  This issue was evaluated to be of low impact.
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2013-1940
    http://lists.x.org/archives/xorg-devel/2013-April/036014.html
  (* Security fix *)
patches/packages/xorg-server-xephyr-1.12.4-i486-1_slack14.0.txz:  Upgraded.
patches/packages/xorg-server-xnest-1.12.4-i486-1_slack14.0.txz:  Upgraded.
patches/packages/xorg-server-xvfb-1.12.4-i486-1_slack14.0.txz:  Upgraded.
