Subject: [slackware-security] cvs recompiled against updated zlib + /tmp fix
Date: Mon, 11 Mar 2002 18:31:37 -0800 (PST)
New cvs packages are available to fix security problems.

Here's the information from the Slackware 8.0 ChangeLog:

----------------------------
Mon Mar 11 17:54:12 PST 2002
patches/packages/cvs.tgz:  Patched to link to the shared zlib on the system
  instead of statically linking to the included zlib source.  Also, use mktemp
  to create files in /tmp files more safely.
  (* Security fix *)
