[slackware-security]  tigervnc (SSA:2019-354-02)

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 "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
( for donating FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project!  :-)
