[slackware-security] xterm (SSA:2009-069-03)

New xterm packages are available for Slackware 12.0, 12.1, 12.2, and -current
to fix a security issue.

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

http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2008-2383


Here are the details from the Slackware 12.2 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/xterm-241-i486-1_slack12.2.tgz:
Upgraded to xterm-241.
This fixes a vulnerability where displaying a file containing
DECRQSS (Device Control Request Status String) sequences could
cause arbitrary commands to be executed as the user running xterm.
For more information, see:
http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2008-2383
(* 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.
