Slackware has recently started to be inactive. At the same time, a number of security issues have been found in various components. This page aims at listing them in order to help everyone know which components have known vulnerabilities.
The list below is provided as-is. It is meant to be as good as possible but we can't guarantee anything. It is sorted by slackware categories: a/, ap/, d/, ...
A more comprehensive effort might appear at some point in the future (binary packages?) but this is currently only a list of packages and their CVEs when applicable and useful. In some cases, we consider pointing out a specific CVE is not useful because of the number of issues (i.e. get the last version; e.g. mozilla-*).

cups : CVE-2011-3170 CVE-2011-2896
Off-by-one error in the decode_xs function in Unicode/Unicode.xs in the Encode module before 2.44, as used in Perl before 5.15.6, might allow context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) via a crafted Unicode string, which triggers a heap-based buffer overflow.
