[slackware-security]  libcaca (SSA:2023-284-04)

New libcaca 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/libcaca-0.99.beta20-i586-1_slack15.0.txz:  Upgraded.
  Fixed a crash bug (a crafted file defining width of zero leads to divide by
  zero and a crash). Seems to be merely a bug rather than a security issue, but
  I'd been meaning to get beta20 building so this was a good excuse.
  Thanks to marav.

  (* Security fix *)
