[slackware-security]  elm mailer (SSA:2005-311-01)

New Elm packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0, 9.1, 10.0, 10.1,
10.2, and -current to fix a security issue.  A buffer overflow in the
parsing of the Expires header could allow arbitrary code to be executed
as the user running Elm.


Here are the details from the Slackware 10.2 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/elm-2.5.8-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to elm2.5.8.
  This fixes a buffer overflow in the parsing of the Expires header that
  could be used to execute arbitrary code as the user running Elm.
  Thanks to Ulf Harnhammar for finding the bug and reminding me to get
  out updated packages to address the issue.
