[slackware-security] security issues in pine (SSA:2003-253-01)

Upgraded pine packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0 and - -current. These fix two security problems found by iDEFENSE Labs which could lead to arbitrary code execution when a specially crafted email is processed by Pine.

This problem is fixed in Pine 4.58. Sites which use the Pine mail reader should upgrade.

Here are the details from the Slackware 9.0 ChangeLog:
