    New gnutls packages are available for Slackware 14.2 and -current to
    fix a security issue.
    Here are the details from the Slackware 14.2 ChangeLog:
    patches/packages/gnutls-3.6.13-i586-1_slack14.2.txz:  Upgraded.
      This update fixes a security issue:
      libgnutls: Fix a DTLS-protocol regression (caused by TLS1.3 support),
      since 3.6.3. The DTLS client would not contribute any randomness to the
      DTLS negotiation, breaking the security guarantees of the DTLS protocol.

      (* Security fix *)
