[slackware-security]  pidgin (SSA:2016-266-02)

New pidgin packages are available for Slackware 13.0, 13.1, 13.37, 14.0, and
14.1 to fix security issues.


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/pidgin-2.11.0-i486-1_slack14.1.txz:  Upgraded.
  NOTE:  These packages provide updates to pidgin-2.11.0, since the previous
  version was mistakenly reissued for Slackware 13.0 - 14.1.  Sorry!
  This release fixes bugs and security issues.
  For more information, see:
    https://www.pidgin.im/news/security/
  (* Security fix *)
