The traditional way of doing this is to subscribe to the slackware security mailing list (cf instructions at

http://www.slackware.org/lists/

) or, alternatively you can access the security alerts directly from the homepage:

http://www.slackware.org/security/list.php?l=slackware-security&y=2...

The entries in this list (usually) contain links to locations where you can download the relevant slackware packages.


Alternatively, you can use third party systems that sit ontop of the slackware package system like for example slapt-get to keep your machine secure, e.g.

altough I have to admit that I have no experience with these tools and how reliable things work.
