patches/packages/mariadb-5.5.52-i486-1_slack14.1.txz: Upgraded.
  This update fixes a critical vulnerability which can allow local and
  remote attackers to inject malicious settings into MySQL configuration
  files (my.cnf). A successful exploitation could allow attackers to
  execute arbitrary code with root privileges which would then allow them
  to fully compromise the server.
  This issue was discovered and reported by Dawid Golunski.
