[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:
  (* Security fix *)
