[slackware-security]  coreutils (SSA:2024-088-03)

New coreutils packages are available for Slackware 15.0 and -current to
fix security issues.


Here are the details from the Slackware 15.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/coreutils-9.5-i586-1_slack15.0.txz:  Upgraded.
  chmod -R now avoids a race where an attacker may replace a traversed file
  with a symlink, causing chmod to operate on an unintended file.
  [This bug was present in "the beginning".]
  split --line-bytes with a mixture of very long and short lines no longer
  overwrites the heap.
  For more information, see:
    https://www.cve.org/CVERecord?id=CVE-2024-0684
  (* Security fix *)
