[slackware-security] ghostscript (SSA:2018-256-01)

New ghostscript packages are available for Slackware 14.2 and -current to

Here are the details from the Slackware 14.2 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/ghostscript-9.25-i586-1_slack14.2.txz: Upgraded.
This release fixes problems with argument handling, some unintended
results of the security fixes to the SAFER file access restrictions
(specifically accessing ICC profile files), and some additional
security issues over the recent 9.24 release.
For more information, see:
