[slackware-security] alpine (SSA:2021-264-01)

New alpine 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/alpine-2.25-i586-1_slack14.2.txz: Upgraded.
Fixed a denial-of-service security issue where untagged responses from an
IMAP server are accepted before STARTTLS.
For more information, see:
