[slackware-security]  emacs (SSA:2022-342-01)

New emacs packages are available for Slackware 15.0 and -current to
fix a security issue.


Here are the details from the Slackware 15.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/emacs-27.2-i586-2_slack15.0.txz:  Rebuilt.
  GNU Emacs through 28.2 allows attackers to execute commands via shell
  metacharacters in the name of a source-code file, because lib-src/etags.c
  uses the system C library function in its implementation of the ctags
  program. For example, a victim may use the "ctags *" command (suggested in
  the ctags documentation) in a situation where the current working directory
  has contents that depend on untrusted input.
  For more information, see:
    https://www.cve.org/CVERecord?id=CVE-2022-45939
  (* Security fix *)
