[slackware-security]  mercurial (SSA:2017-223-03)

New mercurial packages are available for Slackware 14.0, 14.1, 14.2,
and -current to fix security issues.


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.2 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/mercurial-4.3.1-i586-1_slack14.2.txz:  Upgraded.
  Fixes security issues:
  Mercurial's symlink auditing was incomplete prior to 4.3, and could
  be abused to write to files outside the repository.
  Mercurial was not sanitizing hostnames passed to ssh, allowing
  shell injection attacks on clients by specifying a hostname starting
  with -oProxyCommand.
  For more information, see:
    https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2017-1000115
    https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2017-1000116
  (* Security fix *)
