[slackware-security]  kdegraphics (SSA:2010-240-03)

New kdegraphics packages are available for Slackware 13.1 to
fix a security issue in the okular document viewer.

Here are the details from the Slackware 13.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/kdegraphics-4.4.3-i486-3_slack13.1.txz:  Rebuilt.
  Patched "Okular PDB Processing Memory Corruption Vulnerability"
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2010-2575
    http://www.kde.org/info/security/advisory-20100825-1.txt
  (* Security fix *)
+--------------------------+


Where to find the new packages:
+-----------------------------+

HINT:  Getting slow download speeds from ftp.slackware.com?
Give slackware.osuosl.org a try.  This is another primary FTP site
for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading
directly from ftp.slackware.com.

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
(http://osuosl.org) for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project!  :-)

Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for
additional mirror sites near you.
