[slackware-security] tcpdump (SSA:2017-205-01)

New tcpdump packages are available for Slackware 13.37, 14.0, 14.1, 14.2,
and -current to fix a security issue.

Here are the details from the Slackware 14.2 ChangeLog:
patches/packages/tcpdump-4.9.1-i586-1_slack14.2.txz: Upgraded.
This update fixes an issue where tcpdump 4.9.0 allows remote attackers
to cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer over-read and application
crash) via crafted packet data.
For more information, see:
(* Security fix *)
