[slackware-security] ruby (SSA:2013-350-06)

New ruby packages are available for Slackware 13.1, 13.37, 14.0, 14.1,
and -current to fix a security issue.


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/ruby-1.9.3_p484-i486-1_slack14.1.txz: Upgraded.
This update fixes a heap overflow in floating point parsing. A specially
crafted string could cause a heap overflow leading to a denial of service
attack via segmentation faults and possibly arbitrary code execution.
For more information, see:
https://www.ruby-lang.org/en/news/2013/11/22/heap-overflow-in-floating-point-parsing-cve-2013-4164/
http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2013-4164
