New gnutls packages are available for Slackware 14.0 and -current to fix a
security issue.

Sorry about having to reissue this one – I pulled it from ftp.gnu.org not
realizing that the latest version there was actually months out of date.

Here are the details from the Slackware 14.0 ChangeLog:

patches/packages/gnutls-3.0.31-i486-1_slack14.0.txz: Upgraded.
[Updated to the correct version to fix fetching the “latest” from gnu.org]
This update prevents a side-channel attack which may allow remote attackers
to conduct distinguishing attacks and plaintext recovery attacks using
statistical analysis of timing data for crafted packets.
For more information, see:
https://vulners.com/cve/CVE-2013-1619
(* Security fix *)

Where to find the new packages:

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
(http://osuosl.org) for donating FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project! :-)
