[slackware-security] libXfont (SSA:2014-013-01)

New libXfont packages are available for Slackware 13.0, 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/libXfont-1.4.7-i486-1_slack14.1.txz: Upgraded.
This update fixes a stack overflow when reading a BDF font file containing
a longer than expected string, which could lead to crashes or privilege
escalation.
