Slackware has released several security patches since 9.0 was released.

Just go to your nearest mirror to get a list. In particular, KDE has been updated to 3.1.1 and the kernel went from 2.4.20 to 2.4.21.

So: yes, there may be such as thing as a "Slackware Security Patch", just check a mirror to make sure it's legit.

check out ftp://ftp.mirror.ac.uk/sites/ftp.sla...tches/packages for all the current patches (if that mirror is down check out http://www.slackware.com/getslack for more) it contains all the current security patches released for slack, however, not everything has been patched to my knowledge, so keep uptodate with bugtraq or whatever lists you use, also check out the slackware specific security mailing lists at http://www.slackware.com/lists
