No, it doesn't.

The recently discovered security hole was based on a flaw that has been
fixed since 4.70 (released in 2008) and only affected distributions
still shipping older versions.

Exim 4.73 contains additional security measures. An update is desirable,
but not required immediately. At least for now, Exim 4.72 on Slackware
is perfectly safe.
