[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:
  (* Security fix *)

Where to find the new packages:
