Here are the details from the Slackware 11.0 ChangeLog:

xap/imagemagick-6.3.3_0-i486-1_slack11.0.tgz: Upgraded to imagemagick-6.3.3-0. The original fix for PALM image handling has been corrected. For more information, see: http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2006-5456 ( Security fix )

Where to find the new package:

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 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! :-)
