Description

New libyaml packages are available for Slackware 13.1, 13.37, 14.0, 14.1, and -current to fix a security issue.

Here are the details from the Slackware 14.1 ChangeLog:

patches/packages/libyaml-0.1.6-i486-1_slack14.1.txz: Upgraded. This update fixes a heap overflow in URI escape parsing of YAML in Ruby, where a specially crafted string could cause a heap overflow leading to arbitrary code execution. For more information, see: http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2014-2525 https://www.ruby-lang.org/en/news/2014/03/29/heap-overflow-in-yaml-uri-escape-parsing-cve-2014-2525/ ( Security fix )
