-<p>Whenever a security problem affects Slackware, an email is sent to all subscribers to
-the <var class="LITERAL">slackware-security@slackware.com</var> mailing list. Reports are
-sent out for vulnerabilities of any part of Slackware, apart from the software in <tt
-class="FILENAME">/extra</tt> or <tt class="FILENAME">/pasture</tt>. These security
-announcement emails include details on obtaining updated versions of Slackware packages
-or work-arounds, if any.</p>
-
-<p>Subscribing to Slackware mailing lists is covered in <a
-href="help-online.html#HELP-ONLINE-EMAIL">Section 2.2.2</a>.</p>

-The <tt class="FILENAME">/patches</tt> directory</a></h2>
-
-<p>Whenever updated packages are released for a version of Slackware (usually only to fix
-a security problem, in the case of already released Slackware versions), they are placed
-in the <tt class="FILENAME">/patches</tt> directory. The full path to these patches will
-depend on the mirror you are using, but will take the form <tt
-class="FILENAME">/path/to/slackware-x.x/patches/</tt>.</p>
-
-<p>Before installing these packages, it is a good idea to verify the <tt
-class="COMMAND">md5sum</tt> of the package. <tt class="COMMAND">md5sum</tt>(1) is a
-commandline utility that creates a &#8220;unique&#8221; mathematical hash of the file. If
-a single bit of the file has been changed, it will generate a different md5sum value.</p>

-<p>You should then check this against the line for the new package in the <tt
-class="FILENAME">CHECKSUMS.md5</tt> file in the root of the <tt
-class="FILENAME">slackware-<var class="REPLACEABLE">$VERSION</var></tt> directory (also
-in the <tt class="FILENAME">/patches</tt> directory for patches) or in the email to the
-<var class="LITERAL">slackware-security</var> mailing list.</p>
-
-<p>If you have a file with the md5sum values in it, you can source it instead with the
-<var class="OPTION">-c</var> option to <tt class="COMMAND">md5sum</tt>.</p>

-<p>As you can see, any files that <tt class="COMMAND">md5sum</tt> evaluates as correct
