[slackware-security] emacs (SSA:2012-228-02)

New emacs packages are available for Slackware 13.1, 13.37, and -current to
fix a security issue.


Here are the details from the Slackware 13.37 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/emacs-23.3-i486-2_slack13.37.txz: Rebuilt.
Patched to fix a security flaw in the file-local variables code.
When the Emacs user option `enable-local-variables' is set to `:safe'
(the default value is t), Emacs should automatically refuse to evaluate
`eval' forms in file-local variable sections. Due to the bug, Emacs
instead automatically evaluates such `eval' forms. Thus, if the user
changes the value of `enable-local-variables' to `:safe', visiting a
malicious file can cause automatic execution of arbitrary Emacs Lisp
code with the permissions of the user. Bug discovered by Paul Ling.
For more information, see:

(* Security fix *)
