[slackware-security] m4 (SSA:2008-098-01)

New m4 packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0, 9.1, 10.0, 10.1, 10.2,
11.0, 12.0, and -current to fix security issues.

More details about the issues may be found in the Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:

http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2008-1687
http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2008-1688


Here are the details from the Slackware 12.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/m4-1.4.11-i486-1_slack12.0.tgz: Upgraded to m4-1.4.11.
In addition to bugfixes and enhancements, this version of m4 also fixes two
issues with possible security implications. A minor security fix with the
use of "maketemp" and "mkstemp" -- these are now quoted to
prevent the
(rather unlikely) possibility that an unquoted string could match an
existing macro causing operations to be done on the wrong file. Also,
a problem with the '-F' option (introduced with version 1.4) could
cause a
core dump or possibly (with certain file names) the execution of arbitrary
code. For more information on these issues, see:
http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2008-1687

(* 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.
