New libjpeg-turbo 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/libjpeg-turbo-2.0.5-i586-1_slack14.2.txz:  Upgraded.
  This update fixes bugs and a security issue:
  Fixed an issue in the PPM reader that caused a buffer overrun in cjpeg,
  TJBench, or the `tjLoadImage()` function if one of the values in a binary
  PPM/PGM input file exceeded the maximum value defined in the file's header
  and that maximum value was less than 255.
  For more information, see:
  (* Security fix *)
