Multiple Security Updates

Since my last post, there has been several security updates along with other updates only happening on certain branch of Slackware releases or -current:
  • bind: Upgraded to 9.9.9_P8 (13.0 - 14.1), 9.10.4_P8 (14.2) and 9.11.0_P5
  • minicom: Upgraded to 2.7.1 in all Slackware releases
  • firefox: Upgraded to 45.9.0 in Slackware 14.1
  • proftpd: Upgraded to 1.3.5e in all Slackware releases
  • ntp: Upgraded to 4.2.8p10 in all Slackware releases
  • curl: Upgraded to 7.54.0 in current
As always, -current has more changes than -stable and here's the highlight:
  • libdrm: Upgraded to 2.4.80
  • mesa: Upgraded to 17.0.4
  • thunderbird: Upgraded to 52.0.1
  • nano: Upgraded to 2.8.1
  • usb_modeswitch: Upgraded to 2.5.0
  • hplip: Upgraded to 3.17.4
  • mutt: Upgraded to 1.8.1
  • dhcpcd: Upgraded to 6.11.5
  • sudo: Upgraded to 1.8.19p2
  • git: Upgraded to 2.12.2
  • mercurial: Upgraded to 4.1.3
  • ethtool: Upgraded to 4.10
  • getmail: Upgraded to 4.54.0
  • libgphoto2: Upgraded to 2.5.13
ntp in current is now run using a normal account (ntp/ntp) instead of using root account. This will reduce a risk when ntp is vulnerable and being exploited. Please make sure to merge the new config and rc.d script.
