[slackware-security] openssh (SSA:2023-033-01)

New openssh 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/openssh-9.2p1-i586-1_slack15.0.txz: Upgraded.
This release contains fixes for two security problems and a memory safety

upstream reports most network-reachable memory faults as security bugs.
This update contains some potentially incompatible changes regarding the
scp utility. For more information, see:
