[slackware-security]  patch (SSA:2015-047-01)

New patch packages are available for Slackware 13.0, 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/patch-2.7.4-i486-1_slack14.1.txz:  Upgraded.
  Patch no longer follows symbolic links to input and output files.  This
  ensures that symbolic links created by git-style patches cannot cause
  patch to write outside the working directory.
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2015-1196
  (* Security fix *)
