New openssh packages are available for Slackware 13.0, 13.1, 13.37, 14.0, 14.1, 14.2, and -current to fix security issues.

Here are the details from the Slackware 14.2 ChangeLog:

patches/packages/openssh-7.4p1-i586-1_slack14.2.txz: Upgraded. This is primarily a bugfix release, and also addresses security issues. ssh-agent(1): Will now refuse to load PKCS#11 modules from paths outside a trusted whitelist. sshd(8): When privilege separation is disabled, forwarded Unix-domain sockets would be created by sshd(8) with the privileges of 'root'. sshd(8): Avoid theoretical leak of host private key material to privilege-separated child processes via realloc(). sshd(8): The shared memory manager used by pre-authentication compression support had a bounds checks that could be elided by some optimising compilers to potentially allow attacks against the privileged monitor. process from the sandboxed privilege-separation process. sshd(8): Validate address ranges for AllowUser and DenyUsers directives at configuration load time and refuse to accept invalid ones. It was previously possible to specify invalid CIDR address ranges (e.g. user@ and these would always match, possibly resulting in granting access where it was not intended. For more information, see: ( Security fix )
