[slackware-security]  mailx (SSA:2016-062-01)

New mailx packages are available for Slackware 13.0, 13.1, 13.37, 14.0, 14.1,
and -current to fix security issues.


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/mailx-12.5-i486-2_slack14.1.txz:  Rebuilt.
  Drop SSLv2 support (no longer supported by OpenSSL), and fix security issues
  that could allow a local attacker to cause mailx to execute arbitrary
  shell commands through the use of a specially-crafted email address.
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2004-2771
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2014-7844
