Security Updates: httpd, Firefox, Thunderbird, and Seamonkey

Slackware has released another security advisories related to security vulnerabilities that has been discovered and fixed upstream. I believe this update came a little bit late, but finally it came out. The updates includes fixes for Apache, Firefox, Thunderbird, and Seamonkey which are now updated to the latest version that should fix the holes.

As of -Current, there's nothing big expected on this batch. Only two packages are being upgraded besides the normal security packages and they are file and Firefox on testing which is now include Firefox 8 Beta 2. Since Firefox's rapid release cycle come into a play, Pat always build the latest one and include them in testing/ directory. The final version of Firefox 8 will be released next year, but by looking at the numbering (which is now on Beta 2), there's a chance that it might be released by the end of this year (and we will have another major upgrade again)
