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

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-9.25-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:
    https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2018-16509
  (* Security fix *)
