[slackware-security] hplip (SSA:2013-339-04)

New hplip packages are available for Slackware 14.0 to fix a security issue.

Here are the details from the Slackware 14.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/hplip-3.12.9-i486-4_slack14.0.txz: Rebuilt.
This update disables the automatic upgrade feature which can be easily
fooled into downloading an arbitrary binary and executing it. This
issue affects only Slackware 14.0 (earlier versions do not have the
feature, and newer ones had already disabled it).
For more information, see:
http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2013-6427
(* Security fix *)
