    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 *)
