  • patches/packages/blueman-2.0.6-arm-1_slack14.2.txz
    This update fixes an issue where blueman-mechanism did not enforce the
    polkit action '' for which a polkit policy is
    shipped. This meant that any user with access to the D-Bus system bus was
    able to access the related API without authentication. The result was an
    unspecified impact on the networking stack.
    Thanks to Matthias Gerstner for discovering this issue.
    (* Security fix *)
  • patches/packages/lftp-4.8.4-arm-1_slack14.2.txz
    It has been discovered that lftp up to and including version 4.8.3 does
    not properly sanitize remote file names, leading to a loss of integrity
    on the local system when reverse mirroring is used. A remote attacker
    may trick a user to use reverse mirroring on an attacker controlled FTP
    server, resulting in the removal of all files in the current working
    directory of the victim's system.
