New tigervnc packages are available for Slackware 14.2 and -current to fix security issues.

Here are the details from the Slackware 14.2 ChangeLog:

patches/packages/tigervnc-1.10.1-i586-1_slack14.2.txz: Upgraded. From tigervnc.org: "This is a security release to fix a number of issues that were found by Kaspersky Lab. These issues affect both the client and server and could theoretically allow a malicious peer to take control over the software on the other side. No working exploit is known at this time, and the issues require the peer to first be authenticated. We still urge users to upgrade when possible." ( 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! :-)
