[slackware-security]  xterm (SSA:2021-086-01)

New xterm 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/xterm-367-i586-1_slack14.2.txz:  Upgraded.
  This update fixes a security issue:
  xterm before Patch #366 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or
  cause a denial of service (segmentation fault) via a crafted UTF-8 combining
  character sequence.
