[slackware-security] espgs/ghostscript (SSA:2008-062-01)

New espgs or ghostscript packages are available for 11.0, 12.0, and -current
to fix a buffer overflow.

Here are the details from the Slackware 12.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/espgs-8.15.4-i486-3_slack12.0.tgz:
This patched version of ESP Ghostscript fixes a buffer overflow.
For more information on the security issue, please see:
http://scary.beasts.org/security/CESA-2008-001.html
http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2008-0411
Thanks to Chris Evans and Will Drewry of Google Security for their work
on discovering and demonstrating the overflow.
(* Security fix *)
+--------------------------+


Where to find the new packages:
+-----------------------------+

HINT: Getting slow download speeds from ftp.slackware.com?
Give slackware.osuosl.org a try. This is another primary FTP site
for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading
directly from ftp.slackware.com.

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
(http://osuosl.org) for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project! :-)

Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for
additional mirror sites near you.
