Description

New xorg and xorg-devel packages are available for Slackware 10.1, 10.2, and -current to fix a security issue. A typo in the X render extension in X.Org 6.8.0 or later allows an X client to crash the server and possibly to execute arbitrary code as the X server user (typically this is 'root'.)
