[slackware-security] ghostscript (SSA:2019-092-01)

New ghostscript packages are available for Slackware 14.2 and -current to
fix security issues.


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.2 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/ghostscript-9.26-i586-1_slack14.2.txz: Upgraded.
Fixes security issues:
A specially crafted PostScript file could have access to the file system
outside of the constrains imposed by -dSAFER.
Transient procedures can allow access to system operators, leading to
remote code execution.
For more information, see:
