[slackware-security]  libarchive (SSA:2016-145-01)

New libarchive 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/libarchive-3.1.2-i486-2_slack14.1.txz:  Rebuilt.
  Patched an issue with Zip archive handling that could allow an attacker
  to overwrite parts of the heap in a controlled fashion and execute
  arbitrary code.
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2016-1541
