[slackware-security]  grub (SSA:2015-351-01)

New grub packages are available for Slackware 14.1 and -current to
fix a security issue.


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.1 ChangeLog:

patches/packages/grub-2.00-i486-3_slack14.1.txz:  Rebuilt.
  Patched bug where password protection during system startup may be
  bypassed by hitting the backspace key 28 times giving a rescue shell.
  Thanks to Hector Marco and Ismael Ripoll.
