[slackware-security] netatalk (SSA:2018-355-01)

New netatalk packages are available for Slackware 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/netatalk-3.1.12-i586-1_slack14.2.txz: Upgraded.
Netatalk before 3.1.12 is vulnerable to an out of bounds write in
dsi_opensess.c. This is due to lack of bounds checking on attacker
controlled data. A remote unauthenticated attacker can leverage
this vulnerability to achieve arbitrary code execution.
For more information, see:
(* Security fix *)
