how are security updates applied to current?
I looked at the security adviseries page on slackware.org, and noticed only 1 listing for 2010. I'm currently using alien bob's slackware-current script to make a dvd iso (x86_64.) So is this patch already applied or what? How do I go about maintaining a secure system from here? I've tried to search for clues about this but I'm a little confused (very new to slackware,) so I apologize if this question has been answered many times. Also, when a security advisery arrives, do I need to download the updated package? Or can I simply find a patch from a single source and download / apply them? What would you do concerning this issue? I guess easily applying security updates is where debian shines. I'm really starting to like Slackware though, I must admit. TIA.
