[slackware-security] minicom (SSA:2017-108-01)

New minicom packages are available for Slackware 13.0, 13.1, 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/minicom-2.7.1-i586-1_slack14.2.txz: Upgraded.
Fix an out of bounds data access that can lead to remote code execution.
This issue was found by Solar Designer of Openwall during a security audit
of the Virtuozzo 7 product, which contains derived downstream code in its
prl-vzvncserver component.
For more information, see:
