[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
  (* Security fix *)
