[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:
    https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2019-3835
    https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2019-3838
    https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2019-6116
  (* Security fix *)
