Description

New dhcpcd packages are available for Slackware 13.0, 13.1, 13.37, and -current to fix security issues.

Here are the details from the Slackware 13.37 ChangeLog:

patches/packages/dhcpcd-5.2.12-i486-1_slack13.37.txz: Upgraded. Sanitize the host name provided by the DHCP server to insure that it does not contain any shell metacharacters. For more information, see: http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2011-0996 ( Security fix )
