New ncftp packages are available for Slackware 10.0, 10.1, and -current to
fix security issues.

More details about this issue may be found on the NcFTP site:

patches/packages/ncftp-3.1.9-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to ncftp-3.1.9.
  This corrects a vulnerability where a download from a hostile FTP server
  might be written to an unintended location potentially compromising system
