[slackware-security]  util-linux (SSA:2023-290-01)

New util-linux packages are available for Slackware 15.0 and -current to
fix a security issue.


Here are the details from the Slackware 15.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/util-linux-2.37.4-i586-2_slack15.0.txz:  Rebuilt.
  Copy /etc/pam.d/login to /etc/pam.d/remote. This is needed for /bin/login's
  '-h' option, used (for example) by telnetd. If -h is used without
  /etc/pam.d/remote, pam will not be configured properly, and /etc/securetty
  will be ignored, possibly allowing root to login from a tty that is not
  considered secure. Of course, the usual disclaimers about the security of
  telnet/telnetd apply.
  Thanks to HytronBG and Petri Kaukasoina.
  (* Security fix *)
