New libarchive packages are available for Slackware 14.1 and -current to

Here are the details from the Slackware 14.1 ChangeLog:

patches/packages/libarchive-3.1.2-i486-2_slack14.1.txz: Rebuilt.
Patched an issue with Zip archive handling that could allow an attacker
to overwrite parts of the heap in a controlled fashion and execute
arbitrary code.
