    New sudo packages are available for Slackware 14.0, 14.1, 14.2, and -current to
    fix security issues.
    
    
    Here are the details from the Slackware 14.2 ChangeLog:
    +--------------------------+
    patches/packages/sudo-1.9.5-i586-1_slack14.2.txz:  Upgraded.
      This update fixes security issues:
      Potential information leak in sudoedit that could be used to test for
      the existence of directories not normally accessible to the user.
      Flaw in the temporary file handling of sudoedit's SELinux RBAC support.
      For more information, see:
