  • patches/packages/bind-9.11.25-x86_64-1_slack14.2.txz
    This update fixes bugs, including a denial-of-service security issue:
    After a Negative Trust Anchor (NTA) is added, BIND performs periodic
    checks to see if it is still necessary. If BIND encountered a failure
    while creating a query to perform such a check, it attempted to
    dereference a NULL pointer, resulting in a crash. [GL #2244]
    (* Security fix *)

  • patches/packages/mutt-1.10.1-x86_64-2_slack14.2.txz
    Mutt had incorrect error handling when initially connecting to an IMAP
    server, which could result in an attempt to authenticate without enabling TLS.
    For more information, see:
