[slackware-security] libiodbc (SSA:2013-350-01)

New libiodbc packages are available for Slackware 13.1, 13.37, 14.0, 14.1,
and -current to fix a security issue.

Here are the details from the Slackware 14.1 ChangeLog:
patches/packages/libiodbc-3.52.8-i486-1_slack14.1.txz: Upgraded.
This update fixes an rpath pointing to a location in /tmp that was found in
two test programs (iodbctest and iodbctestw). This could have allowed a
local attacker with write access to /tmp to add modified libraries (and
execute arbitrary code) as any user running the test programs.
Thanks to Christopher Oliver for the bug report.
(* Security fix *)
